Car driving

If your patient drove before their stroke, do they want to start again?

If "Yes" (within 6 months of stroke/TIA) or unsure or need more advice, refer to Driving Assessment Centre 0131 537 9192 who can give advice, undertake driving assessment (locally) and provide equipment/aids.

Patients should not drive within 1 month of a stroke, TIA or amaurosis fugax.
