    This confuses me as I've just had to renew my licence and it asks on the form if I suffered from diabetes. I replied yes but are you saying I didn't need too? I am on metforim and type 2

    I think rule 88 May apply here. Whilst dvla are conducting their enquiries you are still legally able to drive whatever class of vehicle(s) you are entitled to! This applies to me when I renew my pcv licence. Correct me if I'm wrong!

    It took me about 6/7 months to get my pcv reinstated

    well I got the medical yesterday, I'm certain either the GPs or Dvla medical group make the rules up as there go along. yesterday for 20 minutes work my Gp was given £100 paid by the Dvla Swansea ? he filled the questionare and I was given an eye test and blood pressure tested then asked to walk across the room on my heels then on my toes. then I was surprised to hear that I would be getting a letter to attend a Heart scan ? and on Monday I have to go back for a blood test & urine test. then the doctor said I just got through with the eye test ! I informed the doctor and showed him an eye test I had got from vision express a month before, the doctor said vision expresses test was way out ? AND THEVE EVEN TOOK MY CAR LICENCE off\\\\\\\\\ME ,in December because my licence was to be renewed in march 2016, then my GPsaid to me on my way out of the room, have you got a car ? I said no I use public transport! he then said why you need a licence then ! I said well need the Hgv as a job ! and a car licence when I use my mates car honestly are these thick heads trying to reduce the drivers on british roads somethings in the pipe line..

    no word of a lie,my licence was for renewal march 2016, there sent me an envelope demanding my car licence back also and if I didn't return it it was £1000 pound fine and it would be revoked.that was in December 23rd 2015. so I cant drive at all now until there dvla make decision. for car licence and hgv went for medical yesterday, now have to wait for results. 3 years ago this happened I was banned for 3 months because of insulin type I , then given my car licence back excluding my 3.5/7.5 TON medium vans , mini buses even my stagecoach shunters class,taxis, but I was told I could re-apply for the 3.5 ton class,the daft part then on that 3 year licence said I could still drive combine harvestors daft thing is do the Dvla think combine harvesters get beamed into fields by Ufos ? there still have to be driven on roads to get to the fields. most have my life ive been a delivery driver . had no problems at all never had any accidents at all, then I'm told I have type 1 diabetes insulin injections 3 years ago and all hell brakes loose, I blame the EU myself. but thank you Robbo for the information ill look into that.

    All GPs and Consultants get paid for completing the dozen tick boxes on the enquiry forms from the DVLA. £100 is actually the minimum... If they actually have to examine you in person then its even more money. Still the same stupid tick box....

    @spaceman IMHO the problem is not the EU per se, but how the bureaucrats on this side of the channel interpret & enforce it.

    I had my renewal recently. I filled in the form and sent it off on the Monday. The following Monday, I got my renewed drivers. Took 7 days exactly.
    I wonder how they wrote to my consultant and got a reply AND sent my license in the space of a week? Perhaps it was because I attached a letter saying I was 100% hypo aware and that I always test my blood before I drive. I think it helps to submit a thorough application.
