Stroke information

You must stop driving for a minimum of one month after a stroke or transient ischaemic attack (TIA). Some people will have to stop driving for longer, or may not be able to drive again. This guide helps you understand what you need to do, including when to tell the DVLA (DVA in Northern Ireland.)

Topics include:

  • Why can’t I drive after stroke?
  • Who decides if I can start driving again?
  • Support with going back to driving
  • What if I have to stop driving?
