Getting tested to see if I can get my drivers license back

I’m supposed to get tested to get my drivers license back but I’m sort of scared. I haven’t driven in 7 years but have driven on backroads at night in my parent’s vehicle short distances. When I did drive it was like I was in and out of consciousness and had times where I couldn’t remember the streets I had past. I’m guessing it’s because my mind is just that slow now.

I’m having second thoughts about being tested as I just started a new medication 2 months ago. Just want some guidance on what the community thinks I should do moving forward. Should I even start driving again and risk others getting hurt? I don’t think it’s a good idea but that would mean Id be without a car for a long while.

I want the freedom of having a car but am scared of getting one. Any thoughts on what I should do? Thanks in advance.

That doesn’t sound good.

I don’t drive because my concentration is poor and I’ll have an accident. You really need to have good concentration to drive.

You guys are right, Those were the thoughts I was questioning. Thanks for the quick responses. I think I’ll hold off on my driving for now. It would be great if I could drive but it’s looking like I may never drive again. It sucks but I don’t want to hurt others.

I wouldn’t give up if I were you. Instead, I’d wait until i stabilized on my meds and try again

If you don’t feel safe driving then you shouldn’t be driving.
