Are you being asked to take an elderly passenger to London, deliver a package on their behalf, or asked to take them to the bank?
Who needs a medical
Group 2 medical reports are required for all new and renewal taxi driver applicants. They are then needed every six years after that or every three years if you're over 65. You may not continue driving without being approved medically as fit to drive.
A group 2 medical is not the same as the DVLA agreeing that a driver can keep their UK driving licence following a medical change. For more information, please visit GOV.UK general information: assessing fitness to drive.
You must let us know in writing and within 72 hours of any change to your medical health which could affect your ability to drive.

Where to get a medical
You can get a medical from your family GP or a central agency. An online search for group 2 medical assessments will list companies that provide this service. You will need to pay directly to the provider, and prices and timescales may vary.
I already have a medical
If you have a group 2 medical for other purposes, such as LGV or PCV driving, it could potentially be used for your taxi driving licence. Please email email@example.com to discuss this.
If you have concerns about when your medical is due to expire, please contact us for advice.
