Cough syncope

  • Group 1 entitlement:

    • Must not drive and must notify the DVLA.
    • Must not drive for 6 months following a single episode and for 12 months following multiple episodes over 5 years.
    • If more than one episode of cough syncope occurs within a 24 hour period, this will be counted as a single event. However if the episodes of cough syncope are more than 24 hours apart, these are considered as multiple episodes.

For more details and most up to date guidance then this must be obtained from the publication "At a Glance Guide to the Current Medical Standards of Fitness to Drive" and the website www.dvla.gov.uk.
