What to expect at your Renewal/Revalidation UK Class 1/ class 3 medical?
The medical will take about an hour.
You will need to come prepared. Please bring:
You will complete the application form Med 160, which we will then go through together.
The medical involves a physical examination of heart, lungs, abdomen and nervous system. You will have your height, weight, pulse and blood pressure measured. You will have your vision and ears assessed. You will need to provide a sample of urine for testing (I will provide a pot).
You may require additional tests such as: Audiogram, Cholesterol, Haemaglobin or an ECG. Sometimes the result of the ECG test needs over reading by a Consultant Cardiologist. The charge for this is £50 and is payable in advance, by you, on the day of the medical.
If you meet the medical standards required, I will issue the certificate on the day of your medical.
If you do not meet the standards required, then your medical will either be “deferred” or you will be assessed as “unfit”. You will need to have further tests and submit reports from other specialists. I will be able to guide you through the process. All extra costs incurred, are your responsibility.
If you are made “unfit”, I will charge for the time I spend reviewing your case. This time is typically spent on “casework” and comprises: writing referrals, reviewing specialist reports, communicating with you, communicating with the CAA medical department and updating the CAA online medical system. You may require a review appointment with me if the casework has been complicated.
