    Hi I am tange, newish to diabetes and forum. Please can anyone explain the rules on driving and diabetes. My hba1c result was 63. Do I have to inform my insurance company and the dvla. Have just replaced my old car with a newer model so I want to ensure I am doing the correct procedure etc . Many thanks folks.

    Hi @Tange ,
    There are other meds you need to advise the DVLA about like Gliclazide as it can cause hypo's, my advice is to read the DVLA guidelines and of course always inform your insurance company, last thing you want is to be told your insurance is void because you didn't tell them.
