Drivers licence medical tests

If you are applying for your driving licence, medical assessment may be required to show that you’re healthy enough to drive. Our team can provide eyesight and medical certifications for driving licence applications.

Driving licence medical test

When you apply for, renew or replace your drivers licence, you need to confirm you are medically fit. This sometimes requires eyesight or medical certifications. Fortunately, we’re here to help.

Our team can provide you with a drivers licence medical assessment to demonstrate your fitness to drive. A medical fitness certificate for driving licence doesn’t take long. Generally, we will start with a driver’s licence eye test. Also, it’s a great way to have a basic health check-up.

Please call Customer Service when requesting an appointment for a Driving Licence medical test as this cannot be booked via MyIndici patient portal.
