Driver Medicals Urgent Announcement

COVID-19 (Coronavirus)

Due to the current situation with COVID-19 (Coronavirus) and the Government’s advice, we have suspended our Driver Medical Service until further notice.
The Doctors we engage are frontline medical professionals working within Surgeries and A&E Departments, whose skills are needed in the NHS tackling this public health emergency.

Recognising the difficulty in obtaining a D4 medical the government has changed the process for applying to renew a lorry or bus licence at age 45 or over during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

In these special circumstances, a D4 will not be required when applying to renew a lorry or bus licence until further notice. However, this will only apply if the licence has expired or is due to expire on or after 1 January 2020.mic
