Hi I'm just wondering if going to renew a taxi licence and a medical is required would it affect getting the medical if there has been a recent stay in a psychiatric clinic?
Is there any particular requirements or is it based on the GPs opinion of fitness to have licence?

Hi there,
Welcome to Justanswer! I am Dr.Customerand pleased to help you.
I t actually is of importance that somebody had stayed in a psychiatric clinic. But it depends upon the conditions; some affect drivers more than others. our GP is asked to give a statement, but there are rules and regulations, too.
