Driving HGV after subarachnoid haemorrhage

Recommended Posts

My partner suffered a subarachnoid haemorrhage  on Christmas eve he has been discarged. There were no aneurisms  and no treatment was given. He just takes paracetamol as and when he feels the need. He is a HGV driver.  Does any one know how long the DVLA will suspend his licence for or the minimum time? 

Thank you

Hi there


Everyone is evaluated differently by the DVLA - it will depend on various things as to how long his licence will be suspended for.  They would normally contact your partner's GP or specialist, so it may be worth your partner contacting the DVLA as well as GP etc to discuss what will be needed.


Among other things, it will also depend on the workload of that particular department.  Read through this driving section within the forum and you'll find a lot more information on what to do and what not to do.
