Driver-Medical are specialists in performing the DVLA D4 Medical Examination for HGV/PCV drivers. The test is a mandatory examination which must be undertaken upon the application of a provisional licence, before being renewed at the age of 45, then every 5 years until 65 when it then becomes an annual check up.
When applying for a provisional HGV or PCV licence for the first time you must undergo the D4 medical examination to ensure you have the required fitness level to drive larger, heavier and/or passenger carrying vehicles. If you have been in contact with a training school they may either supply you with a medical package or book your medical with us on your behalf. Once your medical is complete you just need to send the D4 form with your D2 self assessment form and application package to the DVLA to receive your new provisional licence.
The DVLA require existing HGV/PCV drivers to undergo a D4 medical to retain your entitlements at the age of 45, then every 5 years until 65, and yearly after this. The DVLA should send you a package to your address to re-apply 56 days before your licence expiry date. Our Doctors will provide you with a D4 form during your examination. As long as your application is with the DVLA by your expiry date you can usually carry on driving.
The DVLA D4 Medical Examination includes: A single snellen eyesight test to check your eyesight is sufficient for driving. Urinalysis to test for diabetes. Blood pressure readings to ensure you do not suffer from hypertension. Questions surrounding your medical history, and finally a declaration of consent. once complete, our Doctor will hand back your D4 Form ready for you to send off to the DVLA.
Our short notice booking system combined with our commitment to providing out of hours clinics allows drivers to be seen when and where they want, including evenings and weekends, for a fraction of the price offered by most GPs.
