I understand the importance of your licence if you are a HGV, Bus or other professional driver. It is essential for your work: it is your living!Over many years I have cared for many professional drivers. I am able to provide the detailed, rapid, accurate, heart assessments increasingly demanded by
both the DVLA and other authorities.
HGV and Bus drivers are subject to Group 2 Medical Standards set by the DVLA. You can download the current medical standards of fitness to drive . The standards for professional drivers are set out in Section 2 "Cardiovascular Disorder" on page 20 of the document.The most common heart tests required by the DVLA are
- Treadmill Exercise Testing
- Echocardiography to assess the heart's performance
In some cases the DVLA requires
- Functional testing (Stress Echocardiography)
This is now available.
Tests requested by the DVLA eg for HGV drivers are usually paid directly by them. In these cases there is no charge payable by you.
These tests can be easily and conveniently arranged at Wood Street Clinic.
If tests are requested by other authorities the current special prices for professional drivers are
Exercise testing £189
If both tests are required then the combined price is £368 - a further saving of £30!
Stress Echocardiography (Functional testing) costs £459
Charges include preparation of the required reports
Payment by Cash / Visa / MasterCard not Amex or Diners Club.
