Eye Test


To pass the eye test, the division requires 20/40 vision and peripheral fields (side vision) of 120 degrees in at least one (1) eye.  If you fail to meet this standard with or without glasses, you will be required to get a statement from your eye doctor.  The statement must be presented before your application can be completed.  It should indicate specific vision problems and suggested restrictions if any.  

An eye test is required on all original, lapsed, duplicate, and renewal licenses.  Everyone aged 65 and older must pass an eye test every five (5) years.

Commercial drivers (CDL) need to have a distant visual acuity of at least 20/40 in each eye without corrective lenses or visual acuity separately corrected to 20/40 or better with corrective lenses, and distant binocular acuity of at least 20/40 in both eyes with or without corrective lenses, a field of vision of at least 70° in the horizontal meridian in each eye.

If you are required to have your eyes examined for your online renewal, please click here to schedule an appointment for your eye exam at a Driver License Office (the booking queue will say MVR, and that is okay.)
