The standard medical is very similar to a D4 medical which is standard for all commercial drivers over 7.5 Tonnes and involves the following:
- Medical History Survey
- Urine Test to screen for diabetes
- Blood Pressure Check
This should only take just over ten minutes however if there is an issue which the doctor discovers it may take longer.

"Being a self-employed tutor means I can't wait to see a Doctor.
Thankfully with Summerfield Healthcare I was able to see a GP the same day.
I used to think that private healthcare was for the privileged few. Now it's essential for the self-employed."Pippa Cox
