Frequently Asked Questions 

Driver Medicals are a requirement by law, this is so that HGV drivers are deemed fit for work. 
Driver Medicals are a DVLA requirement, to hold a HGV licence you must undergo a driver medical to ensure that you are fit to drive. 
The DVLA recommends a driver medical upon first application of upgrade in licence (7.5 tonne +). When you turn 45 you will need to then do another medical, followed by one every 5 years after that up until you are 65 where a medical is then required annually. 
The Medicals are carried out using a professional HGV Doctor at our premises in Colchester which is just off the A12/A120 junction. There is free parking on site and the consultation is carried out using our excellent facilities.
