More About Castle Vale:
Castle Vale is a housing estate located between Erdington, Minworth and Castle Bromwich. Currently Castle Vale makes up the Castle Vale Ward of Birmingham City Council which is part of Erdington constituency (having previously been part of Hodge Hill constituency until recent times), 6 miles (9 km) northeast of Birmingham city centre in England. The area has an approximate population of 10,000 people and has a distinctly modern residential character stemming from its history as a postwar overspill estate.
The area was originally known as Berwood, from the Saxon ‘Bearu’ meaning ‘the woods’. Historically being a boggy and wooded area, the area remained undeveloped for most of its history until the deforestation practices of Edward Darcy in the 17th century and the construction of the Birmingham and Fazeley Canal in the 18th century. In the 20th century, the land became the site for the first aeroplane take-off in Birmingham which led to a long aviation history being associated with the area. Castle Bromwich Aerodrome was established on the site and operated from 1914 to 1960, being a major airfield in both World Wars and also having industrial importance as the testing facility for locally manufactured aeroplanes and the location for the British Industries Fair. Despite being steeped in aviation history, Castle Vale became infamous from the 1970s onwards as a large scale example of a failed postwar overspill estate, which suffered from poor construction and maintenance, social deprivation and high levels of crime. The area became the focus of a targeted regeneration initiative, led by the Castle Vale Housing Action Trust (CVHAT) from 1993 to 2005, where the estate witnessed the demolition of many of its housing stock and facilities, the refurbishment of remaining properties, and the construction of new housing and facilities along with the remodelling of the estate, funded both privately and publicly.
What does the Motorhome medical involve?
During a Motorhome Medical, a registered medical professional will conduct a thorough examination, which includes:
An eyesight test using a Snellen chart
Blood pressure checks to ensure that your blood pressure meets the DVLA’s criteria
A medical history questionnaire
The medical professional will also assess your overall health and any medications you are currently taking to ensure that you meet the necessary standards for driving a motorhome. The duration of the medical assessment usually takes between 10 to 20 minutes, depending on your health and medical history.
What do I need to bring to my medical?
Your D4 medical form (We have spare if needed)
Photo ID (Drivers Licence/passport)

What if I get a medical condition after my medical?
Any new medical issues are best discussed with your GP first. If they feel it is notifiable then you must notify the DVLA. Do not wait for your next medical to declare conditions.
How do I Apply for a new Motorhome Driving Licence?
If you are applying for your first provisional motorhome driving license, you will need to undergo a Motorhome Medical and complete the D4 medical form. The following steps outline the process of applying for a new motorhome driving license:
Book a Motorhome Medical appointment with a provider like Simply Medicals.

What Category do I need for my motorhome?
The type of motorhome driving license you need in depends on the weight of your motorhome and when you passed your driving test. Here is a summary of the driving license categories for motorhomes:
Category B: If your motorhome weighs up to 3.5 tonnes, you can drive it with a Category B driving license. Drivers who passed their test before January 1997 automatically have this category on their license.
Category C1: If your motorhome weighs between 3.5 and 7.5 tonnes, you need a Category C1 driving license. Drivers who passed their test before January 1997 automatically have this category on their license until they turn 70, after which they will need to renew it every three years with a Motorhome Medical.
Category C: If your motorhome weighs over 7.5 tonnes, you need a Category C driving license.
