HGV / LGV Medical

By law a DVLA D4 form must be completed and a Medical Examination must be passed when first applying for your HGV licence at 21. The current law for an HGV/LGV licence is identical to that for PCV:  a Medical Examination must be completed when you are applying for a first licence, then a further Medical Examination atage 45 and thereafter at 5 yearly intervals until reaching the age of 65 when annual medicals are required.

The interval between having your Medical Examination and applying for your licence (or licence renewal) must not exceed 3 months. The DVLA must be made aware of any changes to the health of a HGV / LGV licence holder. This may result in a requirement for a further Medical Examination to be carried out depending upon individual circumstances.

PCV Medical

A restricted bus licence can be obtained at age 18 (route and distance restrictions apply). A full bus licence can be obtained at age 21.

By law a DVLA D4 formmust be completed for both types of PCV licence and a relevant Medical Examination must be passed before a licence can be granted.

The current law for a PCV licence is identical to that for HGV and LGV: a Medical Examination must be completed when you are applying for a first licence, then a further Medical Examination at age 45 and thereafter at 5 yearly intervals until reaching the age of 65 when annual medicals are required.

The interval between having your Medical Examination and applying for your licence (or licence renewal) must not exceed 3 months. The DVLA must be made aware of any changes to the health of a PCV licence holder. This may result in a requirement environmental science articles for a further Medical Examination to be carried out depending upon individual circumstances.

Taxi Medical*

(Some Councils Provide their own medical forms and expect their own GP to fill them in, having your medical records in their possession. In this situation we are unable to carry out the examination unless you are registered at our NHS practice)

If you wish to apply for a taxi licence a Medical Examination should be passed before the application stage and when the renewal date of your licence is due, a further Medical Examination will have to be carried out.

The DVLA clearly states that a taxi driver should meet the same medical requirements as a HGV or PCV licence holder.

When requiring a medical for a taxi licence it is important that you ask your local licensing authority whether you can have the medical carried out by any registered doctor, some authorities insist on going to your own GP.

The DVLA must be made aware of any changes to the health of a Taxi licence holder. This may result in a requirement for a further Medical Examination having to be carried out depending upon individual circumstances.

Fork Lift Truck Medical

There is no official legislation regarding medical screening of potential fork lift truck operators. However, it is recommended and good practice that operators are screened to ensure fitness before operating a fork lift truck.

It is advisable to repeat this at regular intervals up until the age of 40 and thereafter at five-yearly intervals up to the age of 65. Operators over 65 should be screened annually.

Medical screenings are also recommended in all cases after an accident or sickness absence that has been longer than 1 month, also after short periods of sickness if the illness may have affected fitness to operate the lift truck.

Should an operator or an employer become aware of or suspect a condition which may affect the operator’s ability to safely drive a fork lift truck, then a medical examination should be carried out.

More and more companies are sending their fork lift truck operators for medicals in order to improve the Health and Safety in the work place. The medical screening for a fork lift truck operator is usually carried out via a questionnaire. However, our Full Medicals will, in addition to assessment of the questionnaire, also carry out blood pressure checks, urine and eyesight tests for additional peace of mind.

Crane Driving

There is no official legislation regarding medical screening of crane operators. However it is recommended and good practice that operators should be screened before employment and at regular intervals thereafter.

In order to operate a mobile crane the regulations fall in the same category as HGV and LGV depending on the weight of the vehicle.
