Driving ability

The assessment of driving ability complies with the EU driving license directive and the national regulation. Usually, an epilepsy diagnosis causes one year driving ban. When you have not had a seizure for a year, you can drive again.

Severely disabled person may receive transport services

According to the Disability Service Act, community needs to arrange services for severely disabled person who has special restrictions in mobility and who is not able to use public transportation without unreasonable difficulties due to their disability or illness. The definition of a severe illness is not based on diagnosis but on functioning. Based on individual situation, severe epilepsy or other disabilities/illnesses may cause difficulties in mobility in a way that you have a right to transport services.

You apply for these services from the municipality’s disability services. You will need the doctor’s medical statement for the application.
