DVL / HGV & Taxi Driver Medical

If you are an Heavy Goods Vehicle (GHV) or Taxi driver and are renewing your licence, you will be required to undergo a detailed medical examination with a GP.  At Medwyn, we can offer you an appointment with a GP to carry out this medical. To book your appointment please call the surgery on 01306 882 422. Please be advised that you  will be required to pay for your medical at the time of booking.  Fees are listed under the private fees section.  Please remember to bring a form of identity on the day of your appointment.

Medwyn Surgery offers medicals on behalf of the DVLA. The DVLA will notify us that you require a medical and will issue you with a letter asking you to contact the  Surgery to book your appointment.  Once you have received your letter, call the surgery and book your appointment.  You will be required to bring a form of identity when you attend your appointment.

All medicals are approximately 30 mins each and parking at the surgery is available in the Reigate Road Pay & Display carpark which is located sited behind the building.

Private Travel
