Hi! I'm very new to all this - so apologies if I'm doing it wrong haha! I recently passed my driving test and am now looking at insurance for a first car. I have also recently sent off my form to the DVLA to inform them of my Type 1 Diabetes, (I probably should have done this even before I started lessons, but didn't actually know I had too - oops). On a lot of these insurance applications it gives the options for medical info as follows: DVLA - AWARE - NO RESTRICTIONS DVLA AWARE - 1 YEAR RESTRICTION DVLA AWARE - 2 YEAR RESTRICTION and so on... Now I am a bit confused... Do I just wait for a response after they have reviewed my info? I called the DVLA and they said they had received my application but it may take almost 2 weeks to hear back due to it being 'busy'. Annoying as I'm sure like most new drivers, I just want to get going! I assume I have to wait to hear back from the DVLA before going ahead and getting insurance - buying a car? Could some also explain the year restrictions and what exactly they mean and how they occur? Any advice from diabetic young drivers would help.. as I said, this is all new and confusing haha!
