Because of my age I have to renew my driving licence every three years . Because I am diabetic on insulin and suffer from glaucoma I have to do a health check . This means going for field tests to an appointed optician . Is anyone else in the same boat and done this recently ? I am a bit worried that I have heard nothing from the DVLA , I know they have a backlog , but only have until June to get this sorted . DH is als having problems so this is a worry for us and I am not sure what to do .
