Hello,

Basically I need a c1 license to drive vehicles up to 7.5 tonnes. Part of the application process for this is a medical which has to be filled out by a doctor.

drivermedicals will do it for £52 but they have only 1 location in my area and that is currently without a doctor so I cannot have it done there and my local gp wants £88 to do it.

I was just wondering if anyone knew of any other companies which would fill this out for me for a fee closer to £52.

Any help would be appreciated!

Find an old Dr who runs their practice from a room in their home.
That's what I did when i took my HGV medical. Think it was 20 quid.

Isn't that a bit... dodgy?

Why is it dodgy?
You need a medical exam by a qualified Dr.

TBH, unless you've had either a heart attack or a heart / lung transplant you'll likely pass the medical. It isn't that strict.
