Since D4 Drivers UK started in 2013 we have devised a number of approaches in which businesses can help their drivers through the compulsory DVLA medical with convenience for both driver and employer. Our business services make life easier for companies that need to get drivers through training safely and effectively.
From a start of 25 drivers a month we are now seeing over 500 HGV and PCV drivers as well as paramedic trainees in November 2015 and the number is growing. Whilst the majority of our clients are drivers who are find us online and need a medical because they are over 45 a growing section of our clients are coming from business:
- Haulage businesses who want to take care of their drivers.
- HGV training companies who use our voucher system as part of their start-up package to close the deal referred.
- Education & paramedic employment training deals, the majority of medicals are done on the premises of the training organisation.
We have many ways to make this happen, outlined below are the most popular ways in which D4 Drivers UK have worked in partnership with LGV training companies, commercial delivery organisations, and national bus companies.
1. On-site inductions
This is most favoured with training companies and education authorities as it allows our doctors to visit the site as part of a training day/assessment. Although it is becoming increasingly approved by large commercial companies who hold recruitment days.
Once the doctor arrives at your premises with D4 forms for the required number of medicals within a time slot we can also use this method for pre-employment medicals and for agencies who have from time to time large induction days.
D4 Drivers UK often perform these medicals on a weekend so as not to interfere with the everyday commercial running of your business.
In addition to performing the medical D4 Drivers UK will also give each driver a document wallet and black pen which we have found has real utility for both the business and for the driver as a safe place to keep his/her documents.
When all medicals are completed we will send you an itemised list of all the drivers that have been seen for your records as well as one singular invoice, which will simplify things for your accounts department.
“I am not usually given to paying compliments………However I think yesterday’s performance by ‘Team D4’ went very well indeed. In fact, the best so far!
Once again thank you for a smooth operation.”
Mark Rimmer, Stoke College
Vouchers are popular with training companies and larger haulage companies who don’t have the need for a doctor to perform on-site but instead have a regular flow of drivers who need DVLA D4 driver medicals to be completed. The main advantages of using vouchers are:
- You do not need to give your drivers money or have them handing over an expense claim form.
- Ryminster only send you one invoice per month.
- Finally your drivers can have a D4 medical at one of the 60 (and growing) locations Ryminster Medical Services have throughout the UK.
“Using D4 Drivers UK vouchers has streamlined the way that we can offer training to our learner drivers. It has made selling our service far easier.
In addition the single invoice at the end of the month has made our administration easier too”
Rachel, Rochdale LGV Training

By far the most popular method of booking your driver for a medical is to simply pick up the phone or email what you require from us. D4 Drivers UK have a dedicated team of people who manage our doctors’ schedules and can find the most convenient location and time for your driver. Once again we do not ask for money on the day however we will provide one single invoice to your company at the end of the month.
