What Is a HGV Driver Medical?

A HGV driver medical is a health check that must be carried out by all drivers of HGVs in the UK. The purpose of the medical is to ensure that drivers are physically and mentally fit to do their job and provide a safe service to the public.

The main requirement is that you must have a valid driving license. You also need to have a current certificate of medical fitness, which must be less than three years old.


You will need to have an eyesight test before you can start work as a taxi driver. This is to make sure that you can see clearly enough to drive safely. You may also need to have a hearing test if you want to use a hands-free mobile phone while driving.


If you have any medical conditions that could impact your ability to drive, it is important to speak with your doctor and get their opinion on whether or not you should be driving. If you are having any doubts about your ability to drive, it is always better to err on the side of caution and not get behind the wheel.


Keep in mind that these requirements are subject to change, so it is important to stay up-to-date on the latest information. If you have any questions, be sure to contact the DVLA in your country for more information.
