    Hi

    Has anyone experienced any problems with the DVLA when completing the DIAB1 form & answering that you have experienced episodes of hypoglycaemia but NOT had any severe episodes (requiring assistance).

    I am currently in the process of appealing a decision they made to revoke my licence back in December & now following GP reports & a letter from myself outlining their error in their decision they have now after 4 long months informed me that I can reapply for my licence which should never have been revoked in the first place!!

    Thanks
    Tracy

    You do if your type 2 on insulin short or long acting I've got the 3yr ticket and its safer to follow the general rule test before u drive and two hours if driving long distance

    None at all. I had to reapply for mine in March this year and I have had 7 spots of DKA and I'm still allowed my licence, however it is because my doctor isn't good at his job.

    I have been an insulin dependent diabetic for 30 years, informed DVLA when first diagnosed, I have not heard anything from DVLA since?
