HGV Medical D4 Assessment in Wigan


Do I need a HGV / PCV medical before I can drive a HGV in Wigan?

Before you can start HGV training to obtain your HGV / LGV licence or to renew your existing licence, you must undertake a D4 medical, that’s completed by a GMC (General Medical Council) registered doctor. Craig Baker Driver Training has HGV doctors that are specifically trained to provide DVLA medicals near Wigan with short notice and evening/weekend medicals available in the Wigan area.


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

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.

A doctor fills out a D4 form according to the information they have about your medical history, medications, and examination results. Typically, it takes around 15 minutes to complete the process.


How often do I need a D4 HGV driver's medical?

The DVLA requires professional drivers to undergo medical examinations on a regular basis in order to keep their licenses valid. At the beginning of your career, you will need to undergo your first medical examination. Then, after you have reached the age of 45, you will need a medical every five years until you reach the age of 65. As soon as you reach the age of 65, you will be required to undergo a medical examination at least once every year.

How will I know when I need a HGV driver's health check?

You will usually receive a reminder letter, together with a D4 medical form a few weeks before your medical is due. You will also be able to tell when your medical is due according to the expiry date on the back of your HGV licence medical. For renewals, DVLA will also send you renewal paperwork by post 56 days before your licence expiry.
