Vision information

 

Reminder: If your license expired between March 1, 2020 and August 31, 2021 and you renewed online by self-certifying that your vision is acceptable, but you have not submitted a vision test to the DMV, you must do so within one year of your renewal.

Note: There is a different process for renewing a commercial driver license (CDL).

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

Electronically

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