Any professional job requires a person to be fit and in good health. Therefore it should come as no surprise that to qualify as a professional HGV driver one must undergo a detailed medical examination. After undertaking specific training and acquiring the desired HGV licence, the UK government requires an HGV driver to take a detailed medical test at an approved medical clinic. It is considered safe to go onto the road only after an all clear has been given to the DVLA by the physician who performs the examination.
If you are a Heavy Goods Vehicle driver (or training to become one) it would be a good idea to read up on rules and regulations which you might need to comply with, as an HGV driver in the UK and/or Europe. HGV drivers are often required to transport goods from the UK to Europe and beyond.
