If you are over 45 and want to exchange your EU licence to a UK driver licence, you must complete a D4 medical examination.
All drivers who hold HGV/PCV entitlements must undergo a D4 medical with a GMC registered Doctor when changing an EU licence to UK group 2 driving licence.
Any D4Drivers Doctor can complete your medical and you do not have to visit your own GP for this medical. We can still carry out your D4 medical even if you are not registered with a GP surgery in the UK, just write ‘not registered’ on page 1 of the form.
Once you attend your £55 medical with our Doctor you simply send your D4 form to the DVLA to receive a UK licence.
You must be a resident with a permanent address in the UK (that you’ve lived in for 185 days) and have passed your driving test in an EU member country. If you are over 45 you must immediately undergo a D4 medical, if you are under 45 you do not need a medical until you reach this age.
D4Drivers have over 70 locations across England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland and we examine over 5000 drivers a month. Many of our customers are drivers who have taken the decision to begin driving lorries or buses in the UK, changing an EU driving licence to a UK licence in the process.
Our Doctor will complete your full D4 medical including the eyesight test, blood pressure check and medical history questionnaire, all for only £55.
Please Bring to your D4 medical:
D4Drivers will continue to provide our vital driver medical service to our customers during the current lockdowns in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.
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. As our phone lines are very busy at the moment please do not call us to ask if your appointment is going ahead. If there is any change to your appointment we will contact you immediately.
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.
