Can a driver be qualified if he/she is having recurring episodes of ventricular tachycardia?

Drivers with sustained ventricular tachycardia (lasting > 15 seconds) should be disqualified. Drivers experiencing non-sustained V-TACH should be evaluated by a cardiologist to determine the effect on the driver's ability to drive safely, treatment, and if the underlying cause of the ventricular tachycardia is disqualifying (see cardiovascular guidelines for complete review).
