Your ENG1 or ML5 medical: what to take with you

Although you’ll be told what to take when you make your appointment, don’t forget:

  • your current ENG1 certificate or equivalent
  • any medication you’re taking
  • any glasses or contact lenses you‘re using, and spares
  • the name and telephone number of your doctor (general practitioner; GP)
  • any reports or letters from your GP, if you’ve recently been to hospital or under a consultant
  • an official form of ID that has a photo: a passport, a photocard driving licence, an official student pass with photo (for new entrants), a discharge book

It’s important that you tell the approved doctor if:

  • you have failed the ENG1 examination
  • you have been issued with restrictions
  • you failed to complete an ENG1 examination with another AD

If you don’t, it can be seen as ‘doctor shopping’ - and could invalidate your ENG1.

During your ENG1 medical you’ll be:

  • asked about your medical history by the doctor or a practice nurse
  • weighed and measured
  • asked to provide a urine sample
  • tested on your hearing and sight (for distance, colour and near vision)
  • given a physical examination (you will be asked to undress to your underclothes)


The cost of an ENG1 is £80. Payment is required prior to medical.

If you are employed in the UK, your employer will pay this.
