As a driver, it’s essential to maintain your health and fitness to perform your job safely and effectively. A crucial part of this is getting a driver medical exam conducted by a qualified medical examiner. However, with so many options available, it can be challenging to know how to choose the right one. At Motor Medicals, we provide HGV and D4 medical exams and understand the importance of selecting an experienced medical examiner. In this blog post, we share some tips on choosing the right medical examiner for your driver medical.
Choose a DVLA-approved company
The DVLA is responsible for driver licensing and requires all driver medical exams to be conducted by an approved company. Ensure that the company you choose is on the DVLA’s list of approved medical examiners to guarantee that your exam meets the DVLA’s standards and that your results are accepted.
Look for GMC-registered doctors
The General Medical Council regulates doctors in the UK. Choose a medical examiner that employs GMC-registered doctors who have the necessary qualifications and training to perform driver medical exams.
Find experienced doctors
Choose a company that has proficient doctors who specialize in driver medicals and have experience conducting them. This guarantees that your exam will be thorough and accurate.
Choose a company with nationwide clinics
Select a company with clinics located nationwide, so you can easily find a clinic close to you. This means you won’t have to travel far to attend your exam and can easily schedule an appointment.
Consider convenient appointment times
Find a company that offers evening and weekend appointment slots to suit your busy schedule. This ensures you can schedule your exam at a time that’s most convenient for you.
Look for accessible support
Choose a company with a 7-day phone line that can offer accessible support if you have any questions or concerns.
