Hi all basically I’m very worried about my hgv licence. I have been going to the doctors for years with (along with other symptoms) a haziness in my vision sort of like the feeling when you first get out of bed in the morning or when you have cold or flu that sort of haziness. I have passed my eye test fine and it isn’t down to glocoma etc my doctor has agreed that it is probably down to headaches and head pressure. I’m worried that when my medical comes for renewal this may have a bad effect on the outcome of my medical? Am I right to be worried? Please put my mind at rest...thankyou

    HI Paul, it’s a worrying thing going for medical, I’m sure a lot of people worry , I just had my renewal and I couldn’t sleep with worry but after it , I thought why did I even worry, just go in and tell them everything about your illness, try take someone with you , good luck

    Hello Paul,  If you have passed your eye test then you should be fine.  Obviously you are concerned whether you will pass  your renewal for your hgv license.  If you are in any doubt that you may not be able to drive a hgv then maybe you should think about a career change.  Whatever the outcome, I am sure it will be the right decision.

    Everyone worries when they have a medical to attend.  People usually think of the worst scenario.  Tell the truth at the medical but try not to worry.  Good luck.

    Hi Paul,

    Didn't you post about this a little while ago? or am i just dreaming that you did? I seem to remember that your HGV licence renewal isn't for 2/3 years?

    Having looked through past posts on the forum i see that you did post pretty much the same question 21 days ago. My answer is the same again, your medical is 3 years away which is a long time. If you have any concerns about your vision and driving at this moment in time then you should see your GP or Consultant. We are not medically trained here to advice i'm afraid. No one here is able to put your mind at rest.
