DVLA says no to Doctors on Wheels medicals

Added: 13 August 2019

The investigation is still ongoing and it’s understood that staff at Doctors on Wheels are being questioned.

The DVLA said in a statement: “Applications received at DVLA on or after 20 June 2019 will not be accepted, and a new application will need to be submitted.  We will prioritise any applications received by those who need to resubmit another D4 as a result of these investigations.  Please note we cannot reimburse any fees paid for the D4 medical report to be completed.”

The RHA is urging members not to use Doctors on Wheels for D4 Medical Reports and says it fully supports the DVLA action.  The RHA has received a number of complaints into claims that D4 medicals were not being completed properly and fit-to-drive notices were being incorrectly submitted.

Meanwhile, Motor Transport reports that, according to the Association of British Insurers, operators could be in breach of their fleet insurance policies if their drivers’ medicals were conducted by Doctors on Wheels.  The ABI is advising affected operators to contact their insurers to check whether their fleet insurance is valid.
