    Just completed the form.

    So I send it off - & then what happens?

    Only been on insulin a few days and my blood glucose readings were sky high, so no hypos yet.

    Sent from my SM-J500FN using Diabetes.co.uk Forum mobile app

    They'll write back to you and say that you've been issued with either a 1,2 or 3 year restricted licence, they may request more time so that they can write to your HCP's for more info, just wait and see and try not to worry.

    The first time takes longer but after that if nothing has changed it only takes a few days.

    I filled in the online form (got T1 diagnosis on Wednesday). Will they send a physically different photocard and will I have to pay the renewal fee now every 3 years instead of 10?

    Yes. It will say the new date of expiry.

    No, you won't have to pay the renewal every 3 years.
