Driver medicals carried out by GMC-registered doctors in Olton

In the world of transportation, drivers are often required to spend a significant amount of time behind the wheel. As such, it is crucial for both drivers and their employers to prioritize the maintenance of their physical health in order to ensure road safety. One essential step in this process is undergoing a HGV Medical examination to obtain the necessary category on your license. It is important to note that regular check-ups will be required throughout your career as a driver, with repeat examinations scheduled at the age of 45 and every 5 years thereafter until the age of 65, at which point annual examinations will be necessary.
