The California DMV is intensely focused on any person who suffers with a medical condition or disorder described as a Lapse of Consciousness or Control. To be clear, a person need not fully lose consciousness to come into the focus of the DMV. Furthermore, their medical event need not occur while driving to give the DMV authority to suspend or revoke a driver license. Even if a person suffers a seizure while at home in their own bed, the DMV will still consider them as being unsafe to drive.
Some of the more common Physical or Mental conditions associated with a Lapse of Consciousness or Control are Epilepsy, Non Epileptic Seizure Disorder, Diabetes, Sleep Apnea, Narcolepsy, Brain Tumor, Alzheimer’s Disease, Parkinson’s Disease, Drug/Alcohol Use, Medication use, Fainting/Syncope, Stroke, Drug Reaction, Change in Medical Regimen, Cardiac Disorders, Pulmonary Disorders.
Absolutely any single event or repeated events where a person experiences a change of awareness or the inability to control the function of their body will be an issue of concern for the DMV.
