Driver medicals carried out by GMC-registered doctors in Oldbury

Drivers who spend a significant amount of time on the road, such as those operating Heavy Goods Vehicles (HGVs), have a critical responsibility to maintain their fitness for driving. To ensure this, both the driver and their employer must ensure that the driver undergoes a HGV Medical examination. This medical examination is necessary to obtain the appropriate category on the driver’s licence. Subsequent check-ups are required at the age of 45, and then every 5 years until reaching the age of 65. Once a driver reaches 65, an annual medical examination is necessary. At Simply Medicals, we specialize in providing convenient, competent, and cost-effective driver medicals. Our services are more affordable than visiting a doctor or optician separately, and we strive to efficiently complete the process for our clients. Most drivers are able to schedule appointments within the same week at one of our 22 locations across the West Midlands and Bristol areas. Trust Simply Medicals to meet your driver medical needs efficiently and professionally.
