Driver medicals carried out by GMC-registered doctors in Newbury

Drivers, who spend a significant amount of time on the road, must ensure they are fit to drive. It is the responsibility of both the driver and their employer to prioritize safety by undergoing a HGV Medical in order to obtain the necessary licence category. Subsequent check-ups are required once the driver reaches 45 years of age, with additional assessments every 5 years until the age of 65. After 65, an annual medical examination is mandatory.
