Ok, in a few weeks I have to go to the hospital for an Epilepsy test after a series of mini-seizures. Depending on the result of the test will rule whether I have to stop driving until I am seizure-free for 12months. A couple of friends are adamant that I will be forced to retake my test after this 12 month period.

Anybody know if this is true? Because I was always under the impression that if you wasn't banned for breaking the law then you don't have to take the test since you've already proven your ability to drive...

Thanks :)

no, no retake required. My cousin had exactly the same thing after a fit at the wheel which saw her driving around the round-a-bout the wrong way :o

I had a friend in the same situation, as I understand you need to send the DVLA notification from a suitable medical bod they think you're fit to drive again, but that's all.
