D4 Medical for Renewal of HGV Licences during coronavirus pandemic


The government has announced a temporary relaxation of the requirement for bus and lorry drivers to provide a doctor’s medical report in order to renew their licence. Under the scheme, drivers will be able to receive a temporary 1-year licence, providing they do not have any medical conditions that affect their driving and their current licence expires in 2020. This will help to reduce workload for doctors whilst ensuring that drivers can still have licences renewed.

Drivers with health issues will still need to declare these, and those with health issues that prevent them from driving safely will not have their licence renewed.

This temporary change will only apply to those drivers whose licences are due to expire or have expired since 1 January 2020 and not for those making their first application for a Group 2 bus or lorry licence.

We provide HGV, PSV, LGV and minibus trailer medicals from our locations in Reeth and Kendal or can arrange a visit to your company to conduct medicals on site. 

Quick turnaround! Group discounts available! Why not have on site medicals to improve efficiency?

Please note the following important information before you attend your appointment:

  • Please bring details of your current General Practitioner (GP) and all medications you may be taking (prescribed and over the counter).

If the doctor cannot conduct the vision assessment for any reason then you will be advised to go to an optician to have this completed separately, for which they may have their own charge.
