What types of medical examination involve ?

Once you’ve booked your appointment take along your approved medical form which is included in the application pack. You should already have filled out the first section of this form marked ‘to be completed by you’. You may be required to give a blood sample as they will be testing for diabetes so best not to eat or drink before the appointment. The examination will only take around 20 minutes and you will be asked questions about the following topics: 

  • cardiovascular
  • endocrine system
  • psychiatric
  • eyesight test

Based on your answers and the test results, your doctor will give an opinion as to whether you satisfy the DVLA Group 2 medical standards. They will complete the remainder of the Medical form, sign it, and put their surgery stamp on it.

What medical conditions could effect my application?

There are no definitive yes or no’s as to what medical conditions could prevent you from passing these examinations but if you have any of the ailments listed below then it’s highly likely that your Taxi, LGV, HGV, and PCV driving license application will be refused: 

  • Epilepsy
  • Insulin-treated/insulin-dependent diabetes
  • Monocular or poor vision
  • A progressive degenerative illness
  • A history of alcohol or drug abuse
  • A history of mental illness or severe mental handicap
  • A physical disability that might impair the ability to discharge the requirements of a vocational driver
  • Heart problems
  • Neurological or neurosurgical disorders (.e.g strokes, blackouts, head injuries)
  • Certain prescribed medications.

Please be aware that if some of your conditions are in the past then you may still pass this examination e.g. if you have had a stroke over a year ago and as long as there are no residual impairments you may be ruled fit but each case is dealt with on an individual basis so it’s worth consulting your GP about this and undergoing the medical fitness examination if you still really want to be a minicab driver.
