How strange. I have held three licenses over a 11 year period and the only medical checks that I have had were eyesight tests.

I also have had 3 licenses and every time there was an eye test for renewal. Maybe there was a drug test on one at least. Can't remember for sure. Though I suppose just the doc looking at is a sort of medical check in itself?

Looked at it closely now and sadly the medical is not stopped for renewals, Just the Periodic Medical Exam. What? One online result says that there is a requirement for a 5 year holder to have a medical test just before 3 years after issuance. It says the LTO will remind you. I had no idea about that. So I should have got a check last year? Didn't get any reminder. In any case how would they remind you?
The LTO statement makes no mention of that. So looks like that did not operate at all and now reverting to just having a check on renewal.

My last renewal was two years back. Medical was eye test, BP measurement , height weight and a guy in a white coat asking me " how do you fell ". Answering "good," that was it. P 600 please for 2 or maybe 3 minutes.

My last renewal was two months ago, for ten years. The medical facility was a new one, outside of the LTO complex. First thing, weight and height and then eye test. I was wearing my everyday glasses, and as I could not read the bottom line, I asked if I could put my special driving glasses on. However he assured me, there was no need, as I had already read beyond the requirements. Past the clearly visible red line. Next Blood Pressure, and a few questions. I was passed, then to the LTO building over the road. It was quick and painless. Being a senior I was expedited. This time a new picture on the licence. Luckily they didn't use the medical photo, as it was truly awful. A fairly painless experience. I had a paper with my licence, giving the dates, I must have a medical. Glad it is not needed now.
I note that there is no longer a drug test. A statutory requirement on all my previous renewals, and original application.
