In brief: Depends

If you are going to have an angiogram performed through a groin vessel the time will depend on the size of the catheter used and whether or not your doctor used a closure device (material used to seal the puncture wound in the blood vessel).
You must consult the doctor who will be doing the procedure to answer your question properly.

In brief: Ask Cardiologist

It is best to ask your cardiologist (the one who did the angiogram) how long you should wait to drive or travel after the angiogram.
