International Congress on Epilepsy, Brain & Mind. International Education Course (EILAT). The epilepsy and driving working group was headed up by Dr Eric Schmedding, a Belgian Neurologist with particular expertise in this area. The other members of the group were also epileptologists drawn from all over Europe many of whom had been members of the earlier Driving and Epilepsy Workshops held in the late nineties in Brussels led by the late Dr Arthur Sonnen. The Directive defines Epilepsy as follows: Epilepsy is defined as having had two or more epileptic seizures less than five years apart.

Epilepsy and driving is a personal and safety issue. Not only can a seizure itself cause an accident, but anticonvulsants often have side effects that include drowsiness.

Objective information about impaired driving in specific types of epilepsy and seizures can provide better informed recommendations regarding fitness to drive, potentially improving the quality of life of people living with epilepsy.

Generalized tonic-clonic, absence and complex partial seizures disrupt function in these structures bilaterally and cause impaired consciousness. Cortical components are shown in blue.

The risk of losing consciousness while driving a motor vehicle and the need to drive a car in today's society are opposing forces at play in determining the fitness and ability of people with epilepsy to drive. We must remember that until some 20 years ago, in Canada and in many other countries people with epilepsy were not allowed to drive. In: Driving and Epilepsy, Royal Society of Medicine.

SUBJECTS 16,958 drivers with a previous history of epilepsy responding to the survey and 8888 non-epileptic drivers responding to a TRL survey. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES The risk of any accident, any accident producing an injury, and any accident producing a serious injury, over a three year period. RESULTS After adjustment for differences in age, sex, driving experience, and mileage between the two populations there was no evidence of any overall increase in risk of accidents in the population of drivers with a history of epilepsy.
