Hey, have been given my date for my medical. Just wondering if they carry out an ECG as im 24 years old as ive seen online in some places that this is only required for people who are 40+. If someone who has recently had a southeastern medical could let me know im just curious.
Thanks

I can’t speak for southeastern but I will be required to have a ECG at my medical and I’m 31.
I wouldn’t worry anyway mate, being so young you’ll fly through it.

I wouldn't worry, I had it done and the machine thought I was dead! They will want you sped through that process though they will be in need of you more then likely due to a possible exodus to SWR at waterloo from Vic and Charing X

As far as I’m aware as part of a driver medical, you’ll have an ECG regardless of age or TOC.

Had one towards the end of last year. There definitely is an ECG which I had and I’m 24.
