@adele_barrow , you have to postpone your test as you may be in no fit state to take it.

You are legally obliged to advise the DVLA of any medical condition that may impact your driving. And, you don’t want to risk having your licence revoked before you’re legal.

In the meantime, you may want to consider hiring a mobility scooter, to keep you mobile, until things have settled down again.

@stumbler Hi the dvla are aware of my medical condition my provisional is on a medical to be reviewed every 3 years , when I went through it all with them they couldn’t see any reason why I couldn’t drive as I thought the same ,as they said to me people with one leg drive , dwarfs drive , u just have to have the adaptions done to suit, my brother in law is a police officer so I had to go down the right routes with my health , I just have to keep them aware

They allow dwarfs to drive? Does someone place a telephone book on the seat so dwarfs can see over the steering wheel???

They allow all sorts of disabilities to be able to drive i have done everything above board by the law by dvla, and have regular health checks

@adele_barrow , you should inform them if your circumstances change, which they might do, albeit temporarily, after your op.

But, your Brother-in-law should be giving you the right advice……….
