What happens if I want to drive abroad?
Driving in The Republic of Ireland (Eire)
The Road Traffic Regulations (2004) for The Republic of Ireland are different from the regulations for the UK. For those considering a holiday in Eire that involves driving you are advised to contact the Road Safety Authority of Ireland for further information at http://www.rsa.ie/
Driving in Europe, America and other countries
The rules for driving with narcolepsy vary from country to country. If you have a UK driving licence, the DVLA regulations apply to you only while you drive in the UK, and do not apply outside of the UK. When driving abroad, you will still need your UK driving licence but you can only drive if you meet the medical standards for the country that you are visiting. Check with your insurers that you are covered for overseas driving and contact the Embassy of the country you are visiting for further information
