How Often Do I need an HGV Medical?
Why Do You Need an HGV D4 Medical?
You need a D4 medical to assess your physical and mental fitness to drive heavy goods vehicles (HGVs) safely, ensuring public safety on the roads.
What Tests are Needed for an HGV Medical?
Your HGV (Heavy Goods Vehicle) medical examination involves several tests, including:
- Vision tests
- Hearing tests
- A medical questionnaire,
- Blood pressure measurement
- A general health assessment, to evaluate your physical and mental fitness for driving HGVs safely.
Additionally, the examination may include checks for specific medical conditions and medications that could affect your ability to operate an HGV. These tests are conducted to ensure compliance with the DVLA (Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency) standards in the UK.
In the UK, you need an HGV medical before you start driving heavy goods vehicles. After that the frequency of HGV medical examinations depends on your age and the type of HGV license you hold:
- Under 45 years of age: You typically need to undergo an HGV medical examination every 5 years.
- Between 45 and 65 years of age: You generally need an HGV medical every 5 years but may be required to have more frequent examinations depending on your specific medical conditions or as advised by the doctor.
- Over 65 years of age: You usually need an HGV medical examination annually.
It’s important to note that these requirements can vary based on individual circumstances and any changes in your health status. Always check with the DVLA (Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency) or a medical professional for the most up-to-date information and guidance on HGV medical examination frequency.
