HGV / LVG / PSV Medicals - Rules

LGV/HGV Licence Renewals

All existing lorry drivers are required to have a medical examintaion at the age of 45 and then every five years until the age of 65.

After the age of 65, the medical has to be done every year.

You should receive an automatic reminder letter, together with the D4 medical form, shortly before your medical examintaion is due. The next review/medical due date is printed on the back of your licence.

PSV Licence Renewals

The medical examination and D4 medical form are exactly the same for bus and lorry licences, so if you have both licences and they are both coming up for renewal, you just need the one medical, and the one form completing by the doctor, and you can renew them both together.

If you are worried about any medical problems and whether they will affect your licence entitlement please contact us for advice.
