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.

Driving - An exercise

Before resuming driving, you should be free from the sedative effects of any painkillers you may be taking. You should be comfortable in the driving position and able to safely control your car, including freely performing an emergency stop.

In the weeks after surgery, as you build up your strength and return to your normal range of activities, one of your final tasks will be returning to driving. Before you go out on the road again, practice the basic movements you need to drive safely, including an emergency stop. Do this in a safe place without putting the key the ignition. If you feel pain or soreness afterwards, leave it a few days and try again.

It is advisable not to restart driving with a long journey.
