If you wish to apply for a taxi Licence a medical examination should take place before the application stage and again 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.co.uk or speak with your local Council.

Please ensure that you bring the relevant Licencing Authority Medical Assessment Form with you. Failure to do so will mean that the medical cannot be completed.

*If you need a medical for a Taxi Licence, you must check with your local Licencing Authority as to whether you can have the medical carried out by any registered doctor, as some Authorities insist on you going to your own GP. If you have any doubts or any queries please speak to us directly*
