Tips Tips for The Average Joe
Drivers with lapse of consciousness disorders fall under two kinds of medical probation. If a person is placed on medical probation, he can still continue driving if he has controlled epilepsy and other disorders characterized by a lapse of consciousness. A driver can only get a medical probation status if he has achieved control of his lapse of consciousness disorder for at least three months. The first type of medical probation is for those drivers who has achieved control of their disorder from three to five months. In this type of probation the driver is required to authorize his treating physician to complete the Driver Medical Evaluation and submit to the DMV on a prescribed basis. A driver who is put under this type of medical probation will have to be subjected to some consideration. This includes seizure type, seizure manifestations, seizure, medical, and lifestyle history, and the seizure free period prior to the last episode. The other type of medical probation is for drivers who have achieved six or more months of control, but due to other factors, there is a slight possibility of another seizure. The driver is required to report regularly to the department on the status of his disorder, for this type of medical probation. The decision to place a driver under this type of probation is based on the driver’s medical history and established reliability. The reliability factor to consider is the driver’s likelihood of complying honestly.
