Hello Just looking for a little advice. I have had type 1 diabetes for roughly 39 years, i was diagnosed when i was 14 months old. My diabetes control has always been pretty good with the exception of a few bad episodes and experiences along the way. I have also had quite a lot of laser surgery on my eyes, the last time being 3 years ago. Since then i have not needed any more. What i wanted to get advice on is that i can't drive but decided it's got to the stage where i really need my own car & independence but considering that i'm 41, have had diabetes for 39 years and have had a fair amount of laser and need glasses for my short sightedness is it really worth my time trying to apply for my provisional license? To be honest i don't think i stand a hope in hell of getting it. Wish i took lessons when i was so much younger. think i've left it far to late now.
