Driver medicals carried out by GMC-registered doctors in Temple-Balsall

For drivers who spend a significant amount of time on the road, such as those who hold a Heavy Goods Vehicle (HGV) licence, it is crucial to ensure they are fit to drive. One of the requirements to obtain the appropriate category on a driver’s licence is to undergo a HGV Medical examination. This medical check-up is essential for ensuring the safety of both the driver and others on the road. Additionally, regular repeat check-ups are mandatory for drivers over the age of 45, with subsequent follow-ups required every 5 years until the age of 65. Once a driver reaches 65 years old, annual medical examinations become a necessity. At Simply Medicals, we offer convenient, competent, and cost-effective driver medical services. Our comprehensive service is not only more affordable than visiting your doctor and optician separately, but we also aim to provide quick and efficient appointments. With over 22 locations across the West Midlands and Bristol area, Simply Medicals is dedicated to meeting the needs of drivers seeking reliable HGV Medical services. Let us help you stay compliant and healthy on the road.
