The Association of British Clinical Diabetologists (ABCD) published an article in March 2021 promoting the need for people with insulin-treated diabetes who hold Group 2 driving licences to continue with finger prick testing to monitor their diabetes, even when using a continuous glucose monitoring device.
This article comes in response to reports of people with diabetes having issues with licence renewal as they are unaware that they are required by law to do two finger prick tests every day, even when not driving, and show three months' evidence of this at their annual review with an independent assessor.
We are therefore urging healthcare professionals to share this information with colleagues and with people with diabetes who hold Group 2 licences. We have further information about driving and diabetes on our website, which you can also share with your patients with diabetes for more information. DVLA have A Guide to Insulin treated Diabetes while Driving.
