    Hi all,

    I'm looking to take my category C1 test so that I can drive a horsebox, however this seems to be a bit of a grey area with Type 1.
    Is it a case of give 3 months of glucose readings and you can get a provisional, or do my levels have to be extremely tightly kept all of the time? I use the Freestyle Libre so don't currently test as much as I gather you need to so I would be testing 2/3 times a day as well as scanning. I presume the Libre isn't accepted as its not DVLA approved?

    Any help and advice would be hugely appreciated!
