In brief: Drive

You can drive after the mammogram.
...Assuming you could drive before =p you can bring a friend for moral support if you want; some nervous patients do that.

In brief: Not needed

Generally after a screening mammogram a woman can resume her usual activities including driving.
In case of extreme anxiety it might be better to have another person with you for support.

In brief: If you want to

Bring someone if you want, but it is not necessary.
It will be perfectly fine to drive and resume normal activity afterwards.

In brief: Take a friend

You don't need to, but what the heck, take a friend, go to lunch, enjoy some time off.
You won't be given meds, so you won 't be groggy. But your breasts may be sore. Take some advil or tylenol (acetaminophen) before you go.
