What Can You Expect from Your D4 Driver Medical in Manchester?
Our D4 driver medical in Manchester requires you to attend an appointment at our private GP surgery, where you will be seen by one of our qualified doctors. You will be required to fill in the answers to some questions relating to your personal details – this is the grey part of the D4 medical examination report. You can fill this section out before your appointment to help speed up the process.
Once this is complete, a doctor will begin the assessment. This is a questionnaire set out on the D4 medical examination report that asks a range of questions about your medical history. It’s important that you answer all the questions accurately and honestly. There are also a series of simple physical assessments to identify a number of conditions, including measurements of your height and weight, blood pressure readings, and a vision test.
Once the assessments are complete the doctor will fill out the remaining paperwork whilst you wait in our waiting room. You will then receive the completed D4 medical examination report that you can use to complete your Group 2 driving licence application. The whole procedure should only take around 30 minutes of your time.
D4 Medical Examination Tests
The D4 Driver Medical requires a standardised set of tests to identify particular conditions which may impact your ability to drive for long periods of time. These include:
This is a standard test to ensure you have the correct range of vision required to drive safely. You can use corrective lenses to carry out this assessment if required, so it’s important that you bring your glasses or contact lenses with you if you use them to drive.
The neurological assessment takes into account medical history and identifies any conditions which could potentially affect your ability to drive. It covers conditions such as strokes, brain tumours, Parkinson’s disease, and anything that could cause a blackout.
This requires a review of your medical history to identify if you have diabetes mellitus. If you have diabetes, you’ll be asked a series of questions about the medication you take as well as the measures you take to manage and monitor the condition.
To assess your cardiac health, we’ll take blood pressure readings and ask a number of questions related to your medical history to identify any cardiac risk.
This requires a number of questions relating to any previous psychiatric conditions, including psychosis, hypomania, or dementia.
