Drivers' Health Requirements

To be licensed as the driver of a taxi or private hire vehicle by Stratford-on-Avon District Council, the driver must satisfy the Group 2 medical standards issued by the DVLA.

Visit the gov.uk website for general guidance on the Group 2 medical standards and the medical driving standards system.

A medical report form, to which standard a doctor must assess the driver or potential driver, must be filled in and signed by the doctor and forwarded from the surgery directly to the Licensing team at Stratford-on-Avon District Council.

For more information, contact the Licensing team:

Temporary Medical Assessments During the Covid-19 Outbreak (17 March 2020)

Drivers applying to renew who are unable to obtain a Group 2 medical assessment carried out by a doctor may submit a medical self declaration.

Unfortunately we are unable to process any new driver applications without a full Group 2 medical assessment.

Group 2 medical assessments will still be required from drivers once it is reasonably possible to obtain them.
