Neurological System Disorders exam
Driving requires the drive to have an adequate sensory perception through vision and hearing, proper attention, cognitive integrity, and precise immediate and well-coordinated motor response.
Narcolepsy, restless leg syndrome, somnolence by drugs, and interference with driving
Narcolepsy is characterized by appearing at daytime of sharp, unstoppable episodes of sleep, that are enhanced with emotional situations. More details here.
Cerebral ischemia and driving
The cerebral vascular disease is the most frequent cause of neurological disability. More about cerebral vascular disease and driving at Fundación MAPFRE.
Higher function disorders that limit driving
Diseases of the neuromotor plaque cause loss of pure strength, with no sensory disorders. More information about parkinson and driving at Fundación MAPFRE.
Transient ischemic attack, stroke, and driving
The most common cause of TIA are cerebral embolus originated by atherosclerotic plaques in the carotid or vertebral arteries. More at Fundación MAPFRE.

Hypertensive encephalopathy, brain bleeding, and its impact in driving
Acute or subacute disorder caused by serious hypertension, characterized by headache, dulling, confusion, or stupor and seizures. More information here.
Neurological visual disturbances and their impact in driving
Several elements of the central and peripheral nervous system complement each other to produce vision. For more information visit our site Fundación MAPFRE.
Subarachnoid bleeding, arteriovenous malformations, and their influence on driving
Neurological disorders are commonly seen with cortical blindness, hemiparesis, and hemisensory deficit, usually with advanced retinopathy. More here.
Eye movement and facial nerve disorders, and their influence on driving
Pupillary Arreflexia and Diplopathy prevent driving. Learn more about eye movement disorders, facial nerve disorders and their influence on conduction.
Encephalopathy due to diabetes and its influence on driving
Diabetes mellitus is the most common endocrine disorder, since those suffering it are more than three million in Spain. More about diabetes mellitus here.
Hearing loss, dizziness of nervous origin, spinal nerve disorder, and repercussion in driving
With Vertigo and Nistagmus you can’t drive. More infirmation about hearing loss, nerve damage, nerve disorders and conduction at Fundación MAPFRE site.
Neurological disorders due to anoxia, respiratory failure, electrolyte imbalance, and impact in driving
All electrolyte imbalances causing neurological dysfunction prevent from driving until complete resolution of the clinical symptoms. More information here.
