If you are applying for a new taxi licence or it is time to renew your licence, it is a legal requirement for you to pass a medical test specified by the DVLA. At Newcastle Premier Health, our registered GPs offer a cost-effective taxi medical that covers all the DVLA’s requirements.
|Taxi||£78.00 (inc. VAT)|
|HGV / PSV / Racing Driver||£78.00 (inc. VAT)|
All taxi drivers require a taxi medical, the standards being the same as those that apply to bus or lorry drivers. The council authority in the area you work will issue you a medical questionnaire, which you will need to fill in and bring to us. This will set out your medical history. We will then carry out a full medical and certify that you are fit to hold your taxi licence.
If you are an insulin using diabetic you will need to provide records demonstrating twice daily blood sugar tests and consultations with a diabetes specialist at least once a year. For drivers with a clean bill of health you should only need to take your taxi medical once. However, if you have a history of heart disease you need to renew your license every three years by taking a treadmill test.
Our taxi medicals service covers the full certification at an affordable rate. Regular appointments are available and assessments completed quickly so you can complete your paperwork and secure your taxi licence.
