Changes to be made to the DVLA driving and diabetes guidelines

The European Commission announced last week that they will ask the DVLA to change their driving laws for people with diabetes.

The current guidelines do not differentiate between daytime and night-time episodes of severe hypoglycemia which campaigners have argued is unfair.

The DVLA has been asked to make the necessary legislative changes by January 2018. This means that licensing can be considered for people with diabetes on a case-by-case basis, based on medical evidence and risk assessments.
