- 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.
