Re: [IPk] auto driving license in the UK



Hello Bob,

As far as I know, you will need to tell the DVLA that you are an insulin
controlled diabetic, and supply the name of a doctor who can verify that you
are fit to drive - usually a hospital consultant, but I am sure a GP would
do...

I have never had any trouble getting my driving licence, but there are
restrictions - you can only drive a car up to 8 seats, and no vans, vehicles
for public hire, minibuses etc

Have fun!

Kate
