LGV / PSV Driver Medicals



The DVLA require existing lorry and bus drivers to have a medical at the age of 45 and then every five years until the age of 65. After 65, the medical has to be done every year.  Any prospective lorry driver also needs  a medical examination before applying for a provisional licence. 


The examination normally takes about thirty minutes.  During the consultation the driver will be asked about relevant medical conditions and undertake a clinical examination.


Based on the answers and results the doctor will complete the D4 medical form.


If the driver wears glasses they will need to ensure they have seen an optician within the last three months and bring their optical prescription with them.


When the driver attends the appointment they need to bring the following - 


  • Photo identification - i.e. passport, photo driving licence.

  • DVLA D4 Medical form (link at the bottom)
