Taxi driver medicals are mandatory and all professional drivers must have medicals throughout their careers.
Taxi driver medicals need to be carried out by a GP in accordance with your local authority and not through the DVLA as with most other driver medicals.
Why a Taxi Driver Medical?
Medical standards matter and we judge an individual’s fitness for operating a vehicle on a case-by-case basis. We match the requirements of the driving task with the fitness and abilities of the driver.
The standards that you may require for you and/or your Taxi drivers may vary, so we’ll establish and agree this with you and perform assessments of fitness according to these levels and at the necessary frequency.
We can advise and make recommendations on a programme of Taxi Driver Medicals in line with Health & Safety Executive and DVLA guidelines, for example after an absence of more than one month or after a shorter absence if it is likely that the illness has affected the worker’s fitness to operate workplace transport.
