Driver Medical company D4Drivers has started to reopen some of its centres with 30 opening across the UK from this week.
The Company plans to open another 45 centres as time goes on with PPE and other safety measures being installed. Drivers remain in their cars on arrival until being called in by the doctor.

As of writing the current D4Driver clinics open include:
