Thank you for posting your query.

If his epilepsy is well controlled with medications, and he is seizure-free, he can continue with his driving. On the other hand, if he gets seizures on and off, or if his last seizure was within the past six months, it is better to avoid driving.

Please get back if you require any additional information.

Best wishes,
