    I'm sure it will be fine for someone else, I'm just stressed enough about having to go onto insulin as from Thursday without the a whole DVLA and insurance dealings as well, was hoping it would be all straight forward

    Your insurance shouldn't be an issue, but going onto insulin will mean you will be issued with a restricted licence (either a 1, 2 or 3 year) and you do need to mention this to your car insurance, however being insulin treated won't effect the cost of the policy.

    I've informed insurance company and they didn't care and the forms for the DVLA are awaiting completion once I see the nurse on Thursday :)

    Hi @Lynmi
    just want to wish you all the best with your application.
    I am sure it will all work out fine.
