Driving after NASAH

Recommended Posts

Two months ago I had bilateral  NASAH of frontal lobe during endoscopy.   I notified DVLA.  On checking DVLA website it says I need "documented normal cerebral angiogram" before being allowed to drive again.  My neurologist said a few weeks at time of discharge and nothing was mentioned about cerebral angiogram.

 

I have no neurological problems, no seizures and did not lose consciousness.  Do I have to subject myself to this risky and costly procedure?  Does the NHS do this anyway - they are already strapped for cash.  Shall I just sell my car?

I'm afraid the DVLA rules are to be adhered to.

My advice is to contact DVLA for clarification.

I would contact the unit you were treated at for advice as well as the DVLA. 

There are rules and regulations and the DVLA are notoriously slow but best to get it right than be illegal. 

 

Hold off selling the car though ?

Vicky - there is a section on here regarding driving after SAH - take a look through that and you will find more information and maybe some advice.

It goes in your favour that your haven’t lost consciousness (did for me ) if a doctor deems you got to drive DVla will allow you to drive ( advice given to me anyway ) but all the bleeds are different so as somebody said ring DVla they are very good
