Driver medicals carried out by GMC-registered doctors in Bearwood

When it comes to being a driver, especially if you are operating heavy goods vehicles (HGV), it is crucial to prioritize your health and safety while on the road. To ensure that you are fit enough to drive, you and your employer must take responsibility for scheduling regular HGV Medicals. These medical examinations are necessary to obtain the appropriate category on your licence. After the initial assessment, it is important to follow up with repeat check-ups at 45 years of age and every 5 years thereafter until you reach 65. Once you turn 65, annual medical evaluations will be required to ensure your continued fitness for driving. At Simply Medicals, we specialize in providing convenient, thorough, and cost-effective driver medicals.
