More About Swindon:

Swindon is a town in Wiltshire, England. At the time of the 2021 Census the population of the built-up area was 183,638, making it the largest settlement in the county. Located in South West England, Swindon lies on the M4 corridor, 71 miles (114km) to the west of London and 36 miles (57 km) to the east of Bristol. The Cotswolds lie just to the town’s north and the North Wessex Downs to its south.

Recorded in the 1086 Domesday Book as Suindune, the arrival of the Great Western Railway in 1843 transformed it from a small market town of 2500 into a thriving railway hub that would become one of the largest railway engineering complexes in the world at its peak. This brought with it pioneering amenities such as the UK’s first lending library and a ‘cradle-to-grave’ healthcare centre that was later used as a blueprint for the NHS. Swindon’s railway heritage can be primarily seen today with the grade II listed Railway Village and STEAM Museum. The McArthurGlen Designer Outlet is housed in the renovated former works and the Brunel Shopping Centre is one of several places in Swindon that bears the name of the famous engineer generally acknowledged with bringing the railways to the town.

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.

Most frequent questions and answers

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:

  1. Book a Motorhome Medical appointment with a provider like Simply Medicals.
  2. Attend the appointment and complete the D4 medical form with the help of a registered medical professional.
  3. Submit the completed D4 medical form to the DVLA, along with your motorhome driving license application (D2 – Provided by 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.
