I appreciate your concerns, and understand that the DVLA is currently in the process of amending the Assessing Fitness to Drive guidance on the use of new monitoring technologies for people who suffer from diabetes.
My Ministerial colleagues have reassured me that the updated guidance is intended for publication in February. It is welcome news that the guidance will allow for the testing of interstitial fluid for driving licensing purposes for car or motorcycle drivers who have diabetes. Goods vehicle and bus drivers must continue to monitor their blood glucose levels.
I hope this response has provided a measure of clarity and reassurance, and I will continue to monitor the updated guidelines closely.
