FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS: What happens at my Medical? Medicals usually take 20-30 minutes and involve a long questionnaire followed by an eye test, blood pressure measurement and a full physical examination of heart, lungs, circulation, nervous system, musculoskeletal system and abdomen. The D4 form will be completed after the medical examination ready to return to DVLA. You will also be told if there have been any abnormal findings which might affect the issue or renewal of your license.
Can I do anything to prepare for my medical? One of the most frequent causes of failing a medical is poor eyesight. If you think your eyesight is not as good as it might be, it could save you from failing the Medical by having your eyes tested by an optician before the Medical is due. If you are 45 years or older, or your eyes haven't been tested for two years or more, it would be wise for an optician to test your eyes anyway.
What if the Medical shows up symptoms which could indicate a serious health condition? This does happen very occasionally. In such cases the examining doctor would give you a letter to take to your own GP asking him or her to examine you again drawing attention to any specific signs observed during the Medical.
