7.2.10 Other psychiatric conditions

Specialist advice may need to be sought regarding drivers who have conditions such as attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) or, if a person is prescribed stimulants (e.g. dexamphetamine) for treating ADHD, this should be stated in the advice provided to the driver licensing authority, in case the person is subject to drug testing when driving in the future.

Where a psychiatric condition is associated with epilepsy or illicit drug use, the relevant section should also be referred to.
