Our local and experienced Doctors complete D4 medicals at over 70 locations nationwide and at times to suit you.
All PCV and bus drivers must complete a D4 medical when applying for a provisional category D licence.
After your initial medical you need a renewal medical at 45, then every 5 years until it becomes an annual medical from the age of 65.
Our Doctors are experienced in completing PCV medicals and we ensure you receive a cost efficient, convenient service to suit you, which is why we offer short notice appointments at an affordable price.
There are two main reasons why first time and returning PCV drivers visit our Doctors for the D4 medical; time and money. If you visit your own GP for your PCV medical you will expect to pay over the odds and face a lengthy wait, you’ll also have to pay an optician for the vision test.
With D4Drivers your PCV medical is only £55, includes the eye test and most drivers are seen within a week.
If you passed your driving test after in 1997 onwards and want to drive a minibus over 3.5 tonne you require a D4 medical to obtain your provisional D1 licence. If you want to drive a minibus commercially, regardless of your age you need a D4 medical to obtain your D1 licence.
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.
