Doctors for all Medicals
Although D4Drivers UK began by providing medicals to HGV and PCV drivers we have since gone on to extend our services to all drivers who require a medical confirming fitness to drive. We have found that drivers from all backgrounds are being quoted over the odds when it comes to a simple medical needed to pursue and further hobbies and careers. Below are some of the other medicals we offer.
An applicant for an ACU motorcycle licence will need a medical examination if any of the following: diabetic, over 70 or applying for an international licence. D4Drivers can provide this medical at any of our nation wide clinics. You will also need an electrocardiogram if you are over 50 and applying for an international licence which we offer at our Wolverhampton branch. You can find our ACU Medicals page here.
When in control of a crane an operator will potentially be at dangerous heights, this combined with the weight of the goods that they are managing makes it vital to all employers that someone who operates cranes on their behalf is fit mentally and physically. D4Drivers UK can provide a comprehensive medical and give you, the crane operator, a certificate of fitness signed and stamped by one of our GMC registered General Practitioners.

You may have noticed that if you passed your car driving test (category B) before the 1st January 1997 you will have automatically gained category B+E, C1, C1E, D1 & D1E on your driving licence. The C and D parts were granted as ‘acquired rights’ which expire at the age of 70 if you do not renew them. What does this mean? Any vehicle over the weight of 3.5 tonnes you will lose the right to drive, for example a motorhome or large horsebox. To renew these entitlements a simple D4 medical is required which our Doctors can carry out. To find out more visit our Motorhome medical page.
D4Drivers provide ECG tests alongside the MSA medical examination for those applying for an international licence and are under 45. These facilities are available at our Wolverhampton branch. For competitors only looking for a national licence and who do not need an ECG, Doctors at any of our national venues are available to carry out your medical. Click on our MSA medical page to learn more.
Hackney Carriage and Private Hire Drivers must undergo a group 2 medical before they drive a taxi. This is to ensure the person behind the wheel is competent medically to drive paying passengers to and from destinations. Group 2 medicals involve a blood pressure, urine and eye test as well as a declaration of consent. However, it is not up to the DVLA who can carry out this medical, but the Local Authority you plan to drive under. It is important to check any GP can perform your medical before you book your appointment with us. For more about Taxi Driver Medicals visit our Taxi Medicals page.
