Has anyone here completed a MWT before? I'm a bit nervous about it. Apparently, you can lose your license if you fail it. Is this true?

No -- that's a relatively new test.  It depends -- if you have uncontrolled narcolepsy, yes, you would lose your license.  But if it can be controlled with meds, no.  Laws vary by state or province.  In Ontario, where I live, I know that doctors need only report uncontrolled narcolepsy.  If you're nervous about it, maybe that will help you stay awake.  Hope this info helps.
