What is a Drivers Medical?
A Drivers Medical (otherwise known as a D4) is a medical examination report for a lorry or bus driving licence. This is required for anyone applying for a Group 2 bus or lorry licence, or if you are applying to renew your Group 2 licence at 45.
It must be filled out by a doctor, optician or optometrist following a medical examination of the driver in question. They will assess the driver’s eyesight, neurological health, psychological health, diabetes risk, cardiac conditions, sleep, and general physical health.
Why choose a private doctor for this?
While many drivers may opt for their local GP, having a D4 done privately by a private doctor is the most efficient method – it is likely to be quicker, avoiding the long waitlist of a GP practice, and can work out cheaper.
What is the D4 form?
The D4 form itself is a written record of your medical state, with details outlining whether or not you are fit and well enough to drive a LGV or PCV vehicle. It is the law that you are medically fit to drive a bus or a lorry - and as these types of vehicles usually carry a large number of passengers and weight - the importance of being mentally and physically vigilant is heightened.
What are the different licenses?
There are however different requirements and limits depending on what type of licence you’re applying for.
A Class 1 (C1) driver is qualified to drive a truck over 3,500kg (C) with a trailer over 750kg (+E), essentially an articulated lorry.
A Class 2 (C2) driver is qualified to drive a category C vehicle, or what is frequently referred to as a rigid.
While both licences require a D4 medical, Class 2 drivers must have a medical when applying for a provisional licence for the C category and must renew their medical every 5 years from 45 up to 65, then annually from 65. Class 1 drivers who pass their category C practical test and then apply for category C+E provisional licence will not need another medical.
In all circumstances, if a driver gains the full entitlement a medical must be renewed every 5 years from 45 up to 65, then annually from 65.
