star this property answer text <p>The Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) recognises that developments in this field are moving quickly and in January 2018, the specific reference to “blood glucose monitoring” was removed from the relevant regulations. This will potentially allow alternative methods of glucose monitoring to be accommodated in the future if it is deemed appropriate by expert medical opinion in the context of driving and maintaining road safety.</p><p>The DVLA is working closely with the Secretary of State for Transport’s Honorary Medical Advisory Panel on driving and diabetes mellitus to understand the potential impacts of allowing the use of alternative methods of glucose monitoring. This issue was discussed at the panel’s October meeting. The panel feels that there is currently insufficient evidence about the use of flash glucose monitoring devices in the context of driving to ensure road safety standards are maintained. The panel will continue to consider further evidence as it emerges.</p>
