Please read the notes below before booking. We have modified the way we carry out the medical to be entirely done maintaining social distancing. Please be sure to register your phone number when you book.
The Government is making temporary provisions for bus and lorry drivers aged 45 and over to forego the need for a D4 medical in order to renew their driving entitlement. These changes are temporary and will only apply where the driver does not have any existing notifiable health conditions, and their licence has not expired before 1 January 2020.
The licence will only be valid for one year instead of five years and the driver will need to submit a completed D4 when the licence is due for renewal in 12 months. Drivers with health issues will still need to declare these, and those with health issues that prevent them from driving safely will not have their licence renewed. All drivers must ensure they are medically fit to drive.
With NHS staff rightly focused on the nationwide response to Coronavirus, these temporary changes will help protect essential supply chains and keep the country moving at this critical time.
I will be contacting you by phone in the week before your medical- please register your phone number when booking- i can carry out 95% of the information gathering in advance and complete the medical on the day respecting social distancing, including bp check and eye test.
