Driving

Your insurance company should be informed about your operation. Some companies will not insure drivers for a number of weeks after surgery, so it’s important to check what your policy says.

Before resuming driving, you should be free from the sedative effects of any painkillers you may be taking. Before you go out on the road, it’s worth sitting in the driving seat - without putting the key in the ignition - and testing how comfortable you are in the driving position. In particular, you should be able to comfortably control the steering wheel. It is advisable not to restart driving with a long journey. You must be able to safely control your car, including freely performing an emergency stop. Your doctor is not allowed to say you are safe to drive- that is your responsibility alone.
