Discounted D4 medicals for trainees

We know that the events of 2020/21 have had a huge impact on the transport sector and we are working closely with HGV training providers to provide an efficient and cost-effective service as GP surgeries continue to be under pressure.

And this includes providing significantly discounted medicals for trainees holding expired medical forms. To make use of this offer upload any expired D4 medical forms to https://d4drivers.uk/helpfortrainingproviders/. Medicals are charged at just £25 including VAT.

Those training providers who have been working with us throughout the pandemic know that it is our top priority to ensure medicals continue to go ahead, and in a timely fashion, to ensure they can continue to meet the needs of the learners they are working with.

Backlog of expired medicals

We are aware that some training providers are experiencing a backlog of expired medicals due to the pandemic and the shutdown of HGV testing, and we are working with them to ensure a swift return to normal service.

In order to ensure that we are doing everything we can to support training providers across the UK, we are offering all providers who open an account with D4Drivers the opportunity to book medicals at a significantly reduced price of £25 (reduced from £55) for any candidates with an expired medical who will need another one before they can progress with their training.

Permanent discounts for training providers in 2021

We are also offering training providers a permanent £3 discount on each of their bookings for the rest of 2021.

D4 medical forms are only valid for four months once signed. If any candidates hold an expired medical, their medical form or other evidence can be uploaded via a dedicated webpage and we can then provide appointments at one of our 85+ locations or site visits, to see all candidates in a single session, depending on the needs of the provider.

How can the team at D4Drivers help training providers?

Our business account package includes discounted prices and access to our purpose-built booking system which allows the easy arrangement of appointments online and gives providers the freedom to book in times that suit you and your candidates, without going back and forth between the candidate and the Doctor.

As well as D4 driver medicals we also provide assessments and consult with businesses to improve driver health and wellbeing programmes and advise on compliance and best practice.

We only use experienced, GMC registered Doctors to provide our service, all of whom complete a programme of in-depth training before they can work in our clinics, so providers can feel confident that candidates have received a thorough assessment from a reputable provider.

All Clinics Going Ahead During Current Restrictions

D4Drivers will continue to provide our vital driver medical service to our customers during the current restrictions in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland and our opening times are unaffected.

As we fall under the Government's list of key workers and help keep HGV and PCV drivers, as well as taxi drivers and paramedics on the road we will remain fully open throughout the lockdowns. You are still able to attend medical appointments during these restrictions, as confirmed by gov.uk: https://www.gov.uk/guidance/national-lockdown-stay-at-home.

All of our clinics are going ahead with additional safety precautions in place. You can feel safe in the knowledge that when you attend your appointment with D4Drivers extra precautions have been taken to ensure you are in a COVID safe environment, including regular cleaning of all surfaces and equipment and strict PPE and social distancing measures.
