What Is Involved In A Driver Medical?

Taking any kind of medical can be daunting and we are often asked about what is involved in a driver medical. Your driver medical consists of an eyesight test using a snellen chart, blood pressure checks to ensure your BP meets DVLA criteria and a questionnaire regarding your medical history. You will be asked questions regarding a range of issues such as epilepsy, seizures, insulin treated diabetes, and many other forms of medical conditions in order to ascertain if you meet the conditions not to be refused for a LGV license.

If you gain the full entitlement a medical must be renewed every 5 years from 45 up to 65, then annually from 65. Drivers must have a medical when applying for a provisional licence for the D category and must renew their medical every 5 years from 45 up to 65, then annually from 65.

You can book a driver medical through Surecall Driver Training School.
