HGV Medical D4 Assessment in Birmingham


Can I drive an HGV in Birmingham without an HGV / PCV medical?


For you to be able to start your HGV training in Birmingham, you must undergo a D4 medical examination, which is conducted by a doctor who is registered with the General Medical Council (GMC), in order to obtain your HGV / LGV licence, or to renew your existing licence. With Craig Baker Driver Training, we have HGV doctors who are specifically trained in offering DVLA medicals near Birmingham, as well as short notice and evening/weekend medicals in the Birmingham area to meet your demands.


What’s involved in the HGV driver's D4 medical in Birmingham?

When you undergo a D4 driver HGV medical, you’ll need to complete a medical history questionnaire and undergo a physical examination. The physical examination includes an eyesight test using a Snellen chart, as well as a blood pressure check to ensure it meets DVLA standards.

Vision assessment: In terms of vision, you’ll need to meet the minimum requirement of 6/7.5 in one eye and 6/60 in the other, as measured on a 3-metre Snellen chart. If you wear driving glasses or contact lenses, please bring them along with your current prescription to the medical assessment.

Blood pressure check: In order to meet the DVLA group 2 standard, your blood pressure must not consistently exceed 179/99. This means that if your systolic blood pressure is consistently 180 or higher, or your diastolic blood pressure is consistently 100 or higher, you will not meet the required standard.

Medical questionnaire: During the medical history questionnaire, you’ll be asked about various medical conditions, such as epilepsy, seizures, insulin-treated diabetes, and other health issues. Some conditions, if managed, will not affect your application.

Based on your medical history, medications, and the results of your examination, our doctor will complete your D4 form. This form is required to apply for a UK driving license. It is important to note that the doctor's assessment must be completed before submitting the application. it usually takes around 15 minutes to complete the entire process.
