 Re: Driving after a cast

Hi Makayla,

It's a great feeling isn't it - I call it fledgling! Well done :-)

Before I started driving and because I hadn't driven in 3 months I checked with DVLC and my car insurance who confirmed that as long as driving had been signed off by my doctor I was ok to start driving again.

I started driving about 6 weeks ago and took small journeys and built up gradually - I am up to 50 mins with a break at the moment and feel comfortable to drive to work. I broke my tib and fib July 26th and have had slow healing up to the 4 month mark. Each day I feel my leg recovering more, I have felt the Achilies heel unlocking and this has made driving easier and more 'normal'. I tried a motorway the other day, just a small stretch but it gave me confidence. Good luck and be safe!
Nicky
