Follow the information in this section if your license expired from March 1st, 2020 through February 28th, 2021. If you need to renew your license, please see How to renew a license.

Step 1: Pass a vision test

  • If you pass a vision test by an approved provider (find a test location now), you do not have to send the vision test results, the provider will enter the results for you. 
  • If you pass a vision test from a provider that is not approved to be in DMV's Vision Registry, your provider must  complete Vision Test Report (MV-619) and you must submit it to the DMV. 

Step 2: submit your completed vision test report


Fill out and submit a short webform using the information on your completed Vision Test Report (MV-619).
