Type 1 diabetes and HGV entitlement

Published by Karen LM in the blog Karen LM's blog. Views: 389

Just wondering if any type 1 diabetics have applied to DVLA for HGV entitlement to be added to their car licence?
My son has been type 1 since 9 years old, he is now 22 and has held a full car licence since age 17. His job now requires this entitlement to be added and has completed D4 private medical and now just recently medical with his diabetic consultant. He may now have to see specialist according to DVLA medical group. Have any type 1 been successful in gaining HGV?
