All student paramedics now require a D4 medical examination to obtain your provisional C1 licence category to drive ambulances.
In line with EU directive if you passed your driving test after 1996 you no longer have C1 category on your licence automatically and must undergo a medical to gain the provisional entitlement.
An increasing number of universities require students to hold a provisional C1 licence prior to enrolling on paramedic courses so don’t delay in booking your D4 medical with D4Drivers and take the first step towards getting behind the wheel of an ambulance.
We are trusted by over 5000 drivers a month to deliver medicals at 75 locations nationwide for individuals and businesses.
D4Drivers has an excellent relationship with the College Of Paramedics and we offer a discount on D4 medicals for its members, as part of our appreciation for the NHS and emergency workers.
Discount is available for College Of Paramedics members who need a medical to apply for your provisional C1 licence or to renew an existing entitlement.
Our Doctor will complete your full D4 medical for only £55. Your medical consists of an eyesight test using a Snellen chart, blood pressure checks to ensure your BP meets DVLA criteria and a questionnaire regarding your medical history.

Used D4Drivers to obtain my medical in order to gain a provisional licence as I needed the C1 category to drive an ambulance. Really easy and straightforward. Would recommend.LC, Trustpilot
