Medical Clearance Procedure
Before being permitted to join this scheme, you will need to satisfy the medical standard prescribed by the DVLA for this class of vehicle.
Once the Road Safety Unit has received your application form, a self declaration medical questionnaire will be forwarded to you along with a letter explaining what to do next.
Medical clearance remains valid until age 45. Further medical clearance is required every 5 years thereafter until age 65, after which medical clearance is required annually. There is no charge to employees of Staffordshire County Council for this service, however, if the Occupational Health Unit requires further medical reports, this cost will have to be met by your organisation.
Non Staffordshire County Council staff will be charged for their medical examination.
If you do not meet the required medical standard, you will not be permitted to join the County Council Minibus permit scheme.
