    I have recently applied for my provisional licence in Northern Ireland.

    I got driving lessons as a Christmas gift, but these need to be started by the end of February.

    Just wondering how long on average it took for others to get their provisional, and how many hoops the DVA made you jump through?

    Note: I am type 1, insulin controlled. I missed a letter to set up an appointment with my consultant last year, so it will be 1 year 2 months by the time I get my next review (it takes so long to set up an appointment in the RVH!!), may last hba1c was around 7.

    My son's took 4 weeks... non diabetic. My renewal took about six... think they make a decision as to whether they need to contact your GP.
