Taxi Drivers

                    £60 driving medicals

The Government recommends that taxi drivers meet the same standards as those of bus and lorry drivers. Responsibility for determining those medical standards rests with each local authority. They may insist that your own GP must complete the medical rather than any registered doctor. Please check with your local authority.

Your local authority will supply you with the medical form to be completed. It may be possible to print them from their website.
