ANSWER

Epilepsy can cause unpredictable seizures. Most states require you to have been seizure-free for 6-12 months before you can get behind the wheel. Anyone with epilepsy must inform the state motor vehicles department. Some states require notification from a doctor. Others require a signed declaration from the driver.
