Weekend Group 2 Taxi Medicals
For a first application or to renew your taxi badge you must take a group 2 medical. Most councils allow you to visit a GP of your choice for your medical, so you can see one of our GPs for a fraction of the cost of going to your own GP surgery for the straightforward medical.
Please obtain the required medical form and confirm with your Local Authority that any GP can complete your medical before booking to avoid disappointment.
Our examination will vary between each Local Authority as they decide what questions and tests are involved in the medical. But all medicals include an eye test, a diabetes test and blood pressure test. Every medical must follow the same guidelines that a driver must reach Group 2 Medical Standards. You can find your medical form online and see what’s involved by visiting your Local Authority’s website and searching for ‘Taxi Licensing’.
Some Local Authorities require a Doctor to have access to medical records when completing the medical and we believe to perform an accurate medical all drivers should allow our Doctors access to their medical records. This is a shortened summary of your medical records which contains recent consultations and medications. You are entitled to a free copy and there should be no charge. To acquire these records:
- Contact or approach your GP Surgery
- Ask your GP surgery to print off a summary of your medical records
- Collect the summary printout of medical records from your GP Surgery
- Bring the records to your taxi medical
When booking your taxi medical please allow for the time it may take your GP surgery to produce a summary printout of your medical records.
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.
