The aim of this review is to provide an overview, history, and rationale behind current laws regarding driving restriction in PWE. The authors also discuss recent findings that may be helpful to practitioners during individual discussions with PWE including seizure recurrence risk after first seizure, recurrent seizure, and anticonvulsant with drawl and driving restrictions in patients with psychogenic non-epileptic seizures (PNES).
