Common theory questions

Are you allowed to drive if you are taking a medication that makes you feel tired, sluggish and dizzy?

No, the rules regarding medication are simple: driving affected is always prohibited and it is your responsibility to know whether you are affected or not. If you make a misjudgement and drive dangerously you may be found guilty of drunk driving, even if a doctor prescribed the medication.

You should always refrain from driving if you have taken one or more medications and exhibit any of the following symptoms:

  • You are sluggish, tired, dizzy or groggy.
  • You react unusually slowly.
  • You have trouble seeing or hearing.
  • You have trouble keeping up with conversations.
  • You have a hard time performing ordinary, everyday tasks.
  • You have impaired judgment.
