Image DrivingGetting your driver’s license is often the first sign of independence and freedom. If you want to get a driver’s license, you’ll need to prove that your diabetes is under control. This is for your safety as well as that of other drivers. They want to make sure that you aren’t going to have a hypo while you’re driving and end up injuring or killing yourself or anyone else. Some other complications of diabetes, for example, those affecting the eyes and feet, can also have an impact on your ability to drive.
