To get a Provisional/Learner Licence to drive a truck or bus/coach you must have a medical examination by a Doctor. We provide a drivers medical service every Friday at our training centre in York. The medical doesn't have to be completed by your own local GP who will normally charge up to £150 for the 15 minute examination. Our Medicals are very popular locally, on average 20+ drivers per session sucessfully all passing their examination.
Please note: ‘regrettably we no longer undertake taxi driver medicals or those with Diabetes’, you will need to atend a medical with your own registered Doctor.
Medical Examinations cost £70 and we will supply all the forms and help you complete them. We also stock the Theory Test and Hazard Perception books/DVD's for you to purchase at the same time if you are just starting out as a large vehicle driver and need to pass your theory tests.
At the age of 45 every large vehicle licence holder will need to have a medical every 5 years to keep their licence. Drivers can visit our medical sessions for a medical rather than using their own GP, it's the same cost £70.

The ‘D4’ form should NOT be used by a driver or their employer for ANY PURPOSE OTHER than for it to be sent to the DVLA to determine an individual’s ‘fitness to drive’.
Kindly note that the ONLY medicals we undertake at Tockwith Training are for Drivers making an ‘initial’ or ‘renewal’ licence applications to the DVLA for ‘Group 2’ entitlement.
WE DO NOT undertake ANY medical examinations at Tockwith Training for ANY OTHER PURPOSE – this includes employers requesting medicals to determine an individual drivers ‘Fitness to Drive’, which should be undertaken by their own Occupational Medical Services.
NOTE: The most common reason for candidates to be failed undergoing this type of examination, is their failure to meet the minimum standard for eyesight set by the DVLA for LGV/PCV drivers.
The minimum eyesight standard set for LGV/PCV drivers (C1, C1+E, D1, D1+E, C, C+E, D and D+E) is higher than that required for car drivers.
If a candidate does not meet the minimum standard for eyesight at the time of the examination, he/she will be failed, as the minimum legal standards for LGV/PCV driving will not have been met.
It is therefore advisable that all candidates who are unsure as to whether they meet the minimum standards, arrange an examination with an optician to confirm whether they do or not, and to obtain a prescription for correction (spectacles/contact lenses) if they do not.
