I think they're mostly focused to check whether you need glasses or not. One may have serious problems like frequent epileptic crisis and they won't notice it.

My girlfriend is epilectic since she was a child, so when she applied for her license last year she had to go through a special committee. I don't remember she did some additional exams through the committee, I think she just brought the normal neuro exams she has to do every year.
In the end she got her license, but the expiration date was shortened in 5 years instead of 10.

It's completely back now. Apparently Jan messed something up. At least this doesn't censor Scunthorpe.

Two months later, it has happened again!

Same company, same truck, but this time it's been a Russian (not Ukrainian) driver carrying oranges to Sweden (not Latvia):

Yes, I was not sure about the EN meaning but a male elephant is also called Elefantenbulle (elephant bull) in German .
