    I'm now confused between the information from Diabetes UK, who say you should always tell the DVLA about a diabetes diagnosis either type 1 or 2, and that from the DVLA which states you don't have to inform them if your diabetes is treated by tablets, diet or both.

    Can someone tell me which is correct please?

    Only if you take medication that could cause a hypo do you need to tell them but you should tell your insurance tho as if you needed to make a claim they don't like to pay out anyway
