I'm coming up to 6 weeks after my c-section and I was wondering if I need to have physical proof from the doctor to be able to drive again. I'm 6weeks Xmas eve so unable to have my check then. I'm booked in the week after. I understand that you have to wait 6weeks to be able to drive again due to issues with insurance etc. whilst it was nice to begin with being driven about I'm now getting frustrated of not being able to go drive to the shops and see people.
