Medical examiner for completion of DVLA form D4.

I am about to renew my driving licence, which expires the day before my 76th birthday. If I do not wish to have my entitlement removed to drive vehicles between 3,500kg and 7,500kg, I must renew using the paper application form, accompanied by a DVLA D4 form which has to be completed by a doctor and/or optician.
Does anybody have experience of finding a doctor within striking distance of Surrey, who undertakes the necessary medical examination for the completion of Form D4? I'm not happy to ask my, already overworked, GP to carry-out such a task.

Although you GP may be over worked the medical is extra paid work for them and your own GP is the best person to carry out the medical as they know your medical history, and it is possible that if you book elsewhere it could turn out be be a GP from your usual practice that is carrying out some extra paid work.
Best practice is to see your own GP.
This is my own humble opinion.

Hi Alan
Try the following link -

http://d4drivers.uk/

D4Drivers are a National company that offer medicals at a more realistic price of 55 & not the sometimes extortionate price yoir own GP charges for a 15 min appointment.
They offer times/dates/locations to suit and are all obviously medically qualified to carry out the completion of the D4 form.
Good luck.
Regards

Driversmedicals.com also provide medicals at a more reasonable fee. Personally I use Dr P Wilkin at Buttercups clinic in Hurst, Near Wokingham. He charges 50 and is very helpful. tel: 0118934 2774. As stated above, it is a private medical so most Doctors are pleased to do them. Avoid Doctors on Wheels as DVLA say they will not accept medical reports produced by them.
