In brief: Recovery

Certainly when you are off your pain medications.
However, it does depend on the technique, your healing, and recovery.

In brief: 1 days

I generally counsel my patients that driving is permitted once a full fist can be made.
Because the bandages are relatively light following a carpal tunnel release, finger movement is permissible and encouraged. It generally takes 24-48 hours to regain full finger movements, though sometimes it takes longer.
