Pre-Employment Medical Exam

Pre-employment medicals, 8am to 8pm

A pre-employment exam is a requirement from some companies before you start employment with them. They are typically jobs that require strenuous physical activity or physically fit individuals to perform their tasks.

Pre-employment medical examinations are designed to ensure that an individual is healthy enough to do their job. They help to create a working environment that is safe and secure so there are fewer injuries in the workplace.

Expert GPs available at convenient times

At The Medical, we undertand that we need to be flexible around your working hours. Our aim is to make it as easy as possible for you to make an appointment with us, so our pre-employment medicals are available five days a week, from 8am until 8pm.

If one of your conditions of employment is that you provide a medical certified by a GP, our highly qualified doctors can perform the complete range of medical tests required for your Pre-employment Medical.

Our doctors are all registered with the General Medical Council (GMC) and are members of the Royal College of General Practitioners (MRCGP).

Common Pre-employment types


taxi driver

D4 Taxi Driver

Taxi drivers will usually be issued with a specific medical form devised by their local Council, although some councils that we carry Taxi medicals out for require on a DVLA D4 from being completed.

If you wish to apply for a taxi Licence a medical examination should take place before the application stage and then when the renewal of your Licence is due.

The DVLA expects that a taxi driver should meet the same medical requirements as a HGV or PCV Licence holder. Visit the DVLA website if you need any more information at www.dvla.gov.uk or speak with your local council.

Select D4 taxi driver
hgv driver

D4 HGV Driver

DVLA D4 form must be completed and a medical examination must be passed when first applying for your HGV Licence at 18; then a further medical examination at age 45 and thereafter at 5 yearly intervals until reaching the age of 65 when annual medicals are required.

The interval between having your medical examination and applying for your Licence (or Licence renewal) must not exceed 3 months. The DVLA must be made aware of any changes to the health of an HGV / LGV Licence holder at any time. This may result in a requirement for a further medical examination being carried out depending upon individual circumstances.

Select D4 HGV
pcv driver

PCV Driver

A restricted bus Licence can be obtained at age 18 (route and distance restrictions apply). A full bus Licence can be obtained at age 21.

By law a DVLA D4 form must be completed for both types of PCV Licence and a relevant medical examination must be passed before a Licence can be granted.

The current law for a PCV Licence is identical to that for HGV and LGV: a medical examination must be completed when you are applying for a first Licence, then a further medical examination at age 45 and thereafter at 5 yearly intervals until reaching the age of 65 when annual medicals are required. The interval between having your medical examination and applying for your Licence (or Licence renewal) must not exceed 3 months. The DVLA must be made aware of any changes to the health of a PCV Licence holder at any time. This may result in a requirement for a further medical examination being carried out depending upon individual circumstances.

ACU Motorsport

Motorsport medicals can vary depending on relevant race Licence body. These again will be provided with a medical form for the doctor to complete.

Most people are led to believe only their own GP can carry out this medical examination, meaning they have to pay over the odds and endure a near month wait. This is not the case however, any fully GMC registered Doctor can carry out the ACU medical exam.

Depending on health, age and whether you are planning to race internationally, you may need a medical examination to gain your competitive licence.
