    Hi

    I am new to the forum and would like some advice from anyone!!

    I have been T1 for 22yrs and have over the past year been receiving laser treatment in both eyes, none however since last September, however my driving licence is up for renewal and they have stated that I need to attend a Fields test to determine whether they will renew my licence, I am so scared that they will take my licence away that I feel physically sick, please can someone tell me what percentage I need to get to pass the test, I have had one in the past at Specsavers and to be honest I could hardly see the lights (I am sure the machine wasnt very good) and she didnt let me wear my glasses which I need for driving???!??, my eyesight hasnt changed at all and if anything my vision has improved, can anyone tell me what to expect and can I insist on wearing my glasses or contacts, please HELP :(

    This may help explain the test.
