  • Full details of any ongoing medical conditions plus any medication you are taking

How do I get a copy of my Medical Summary Record?

Contact your GP practice and they will print a copy for you. You do not need an appointment with your GP, simply request a copy from the reception staff. It is normally provided free of charge although some practices may charge a small fee for printing.

What does the medical examination involve?

You should already have filled out sections A, B and C of the TPH/204 medical form before you arrive. The consultation with the doctor should only take 15 minutes.  You will be asked questions about your medical history and current health, perform an eye test and have your blood pressure checked.  Based on your answers and the results of the tests the doctor will advise you as to whether you meet the required medical standard.  The remainder of the form will be completed, signed and stamped by the doctor.

Before attending, please download and complete the London Taxi and Private Hire TPH/204 Medical Declaration form and bring it with you to the medical.
