Customer Question
I am from NY...

I am from NY and am moving to FLA. I have had seizures since 1991 and have been treated by an neurologist since then. I have complex partial seizures in which I have never lost consciousness. The last seizure I have had was in March of this year. I have held a valid NY state drivers license since 1993 after medical review by the NY DMV. How much of a hassle will I get from FLA DMV to obtain an FLA drivers license.

Lawyer's Assistant: Regulations vary from place to place, so can you tell me what state this is in?

New York State.

Lawyer's Assistant: Do you need to appear in court?

Not sure what you mean.

Does your NY license have any restrictions on the license regarding the seizures?

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
