Taxi Driver Medical
It is a mandatory requirement that all drivers must undergo and pass a taxi driver medical assessment before being granted their license to operate. The taxi driver medical assessment ensures taxi drivers are medically fit to safely drive a private hire vehicle or hackney carriage on public roads. This applies to new drivers and also drivers who wish to renew their taxi license.

During the medical assessment our qualified onsite doctor will perform a detailed evaluation of your physical and mental health which will include a blood pressure check, eyesight test and a medical questionnaire. Our doctor will also review your medical history inline with local authority requirements.
There are no prerequisites for a Taxi Driver Medical. However, delegates must bring:
- Photographic ID (passport or driving license)
- Driving glasses / contact lenses & prescription for glasses
- A list of current medication with doses
- A printed summary of GP records which must be obtained up to two months prior to your medical. These can be obtained by phoning your surgery and asking for a patient summary or downloading them online by registering for your GP’s online services
