Remove discrimination towards diabetic drivers

When I became a diabetic in 1993 my insurance premium went through the roof, my licence was restricted to three years but I could still drive vehicles up to 7.5 ton.

After renewing my licence for the second three year period, I was told the C1/D1 entitlement had been removed. I was told that if I was to pay to have various medical checks etc. I maybe considered for C1 entitlement for 1 year only.

My idea is to restore C1/D1 entitlement to diabetic drivers who already had the privilage before they became diabetic.

Why is this idea important?
