    No it's not - DVLA guidance clearly state that if its between 4 and 5 you can still drive as long as you have a snack

    We're in a different country. But the point is I wasn't under 5 so that's why I didn't respond to the last person about that as wasn't relevant to my post here. If I was under 5 I would've drove somewhere and pulled over. I was under 5 after I got home though from having my juice I had on the road. I'm referring to a sensation, not an actual hypo... that was my original point. But yes that makes sense what your rules are as well as technically too low is below 4.
