    Suggest you PM motor Roamin - he runs a HGV driver training school and deals with that sort of thing every day

    Double bypass back in March 2015...
    Only driving restriction was 4 weeks as stated by DVLA but hospital recommended 6 weeks.
    No need to notify and insurance companies not bothered. Nurses told me to tell them but all the vehicle insurances said there was no need.

    No one has ever mentioned stress test and my standard licence cover up to 7.5t .
    Havn't bothered to renew my HGV for some time so not sure on whats involved there..

    Not sure if that helps as i am no where near 70.. ;)

    Things very different when you reach 70 a medical every three years and unfortunately my license expired one week after my operation so I had to wait to have my medical which was fine The DV L A Took nine weeks to respond to my license application and then only to inform me that I had to take the stress test which I completed successfully last week .
