In the US it seems that they commonly start at 36 weeks. Mine said between 34 and 36 I cant remember though. But I think 36 weeks is common in US, but then again every doctor is different. Some dont do them until after you have hit your due date (but I think that is more of a common practice in the UK)
They checked me at 35 weeks while they did the strep b swab, because they adds down there anyway. They checked me at 37 weeks again because I was having contractions, and found that I was 1 cm, 50% effaced. They are going to check again to see I made progress.
