I submitted my drivers license for medical review to get it reactivated since it is currently suspended due to my epilepsy (thanks to my attempt to get my Florida license reactivated after moving 3 years ago).

Anyway, it's now been... 2.5 months? And I still haven't heard anything back? Does this seem like a normal time frame for the review process to take? Should I be concerned? What on earth could be taking so long??

Also, if I were to move out of state, would I have to START OVER in this process, or would I be able to use my Florida doctor and his records as a reference when getting a license in whatever state I choose to move to? I don't want to have to wind up with a Florida drivers license, move to a new state, and then wind up not being able to get a license in said new state because of the inevitable change in doctors.

Thanks!

I'm 40 now told the DMV here in Az. They gave me a license with no restrictions. Sorry your having trouble. I know for me it's better not to drive.

Is the delay at the DMV or with your doc? Either way, don't be shy about calling and ushing for a timetable. Sometimes these things get lost in the system.

No delay , they just don't seem th care. It's in Phx. Az. The doctor doesn't have anything to say about it.

The doctor should have sent the form out to the DMV... if they didn't I would be FURIOUS. So the delay should be on the DHSMV.

I guess I'll call them when I'm back in the United States in another month. That'll give them some additional time to get their act together :clap:

Wait a minute! I just read your other post about not having your seizures controlled and now you say you still drive? :ponder: OMG!! You're right.........it is better for you NOT TO DRIVE!

I don't drive anymore because my seizures aren't fully controlled.

Yes it is better I don't drive. I'm to scared to drive. I don't take that chance. So everyone calm down. Just stating the facts Ariazon don't care.

Hi Resae
Hope you get it all sorted out and you find out about your licence resubmitted. Good luck.

I read on your previous posts that you have seizures daily & have tonic clonics. So I'm curious how are you able to get your licence with no restrictions? Didn't you have to be signed of by your specialist?

I'm not from America but over here in Australia you have to be signed of by your neurologist/ epioligist before you can get your licence.
I take partial seizures & was on restricitions which included no driving, I had surgery in 2011 which meant I was 2 years seizure free but the partials returned in 2013. Once the seizures returned I was put straigt back on restrictions.

I dont mind though as Ive never been interested in driving plus I wouldnt risk it as I never know when I'll have a seizure & I get around everywhere by walking or public trasport.

I told them several times. The last time they gave it to me until I'm 55. I Don't Drive! It would be worse than drunk driving. They just don't seem to care here in Ariazona.

Thanks to a special technicality over here, my boat licence has remained active the 4 years my car licence has been suspended...and they're both administered by the same government department.

With a bit of luck I'll be signed off next month to get my car licence again.
