In order to get or prolong a driving license, it is mandatory to do a medical examination and get a Certificate of health fitness for driving motor vehicles of specific categories. Besides the fact that it is required by law, a medical examination is necessary for one simple reason – establishing if you have a health and mental fitness for driving motor vehicles without any indication of danger for yourself or others in traffic.
Very often it happens that for doing a medical examination as a main part of getting or prolonging a driving license, you don't have all the information about required documentation, steps in the procedure, where to do the examination or what its price is. Institution Nemetova-Prima provides full service – we offer you a fast and efficient service and medical examinations, as well as all the information you need in order to make the whole process easier for you.
Basic medical examination for driver's license includes a complete examination of our occupational health specialist, eyesight examination and psychological testing after which we issue a Certificate of physical and mental fitness for driving motor vehicles of specific category. For professional drivers the examination also includes laboratory tests, spirometry, hearing examination and ECG.
Medical Certificate is valid for 6 months. If you pass your driver's exam after that period, you will need to do the examination again in order to get your license.
For prolonging your license you also need to do the medical examination and get the Certificate from an occupational health specialist. A driver's license has to be prolonged when it's expired, in case of obligatory periodic prolonging for specific vehicle categories (C, C+E, C1, C1+E, D, E, H) and for driving instructors.
According to the last Law amendments, the novelty is that drivers older than 65 no longer have to prolong their driver's license. Another novelty is that drivers who don't have an expiration date of their license no longer have to do medical examinations for prolonging their licenses.
Drivers who have an annotation of wearing glasses, contact lenses, etc. in their licenses, established on their previous medical Certificate based on which their license was issued, have the obligation to prolong their license.
Hence, we kindly ask you to check your license for any annotations before you decide to do a medical examination. If you have no annotations on your license, please contact the Police Department for prolonging your license.
Medical examination for A and B categories lasts about 2 hours, and you can do it every working day from 7 AM to 1 PM without any prior announcement or ordering.
Medical examination for C, D and E categories for professional use also lasts about 2 hours, and you have to come to the examination hungry/fasting. You can do your examination every working day at 9 AM the latest, also without any prior announcement or ordering.

The other group consists of B category drivers that use their driving licenses for professional purposes, and drivers of categories C, CE, C1, C1E, D, DE, D1, D1E and H.
