Your vision may be checked for compliance with CDL standards. If you wear prescription glasses or contact lenses for distance vision, be sure to wear them.
You must have uncorrected vision of 20/40 or better in each eye to obtain an unrestricted license. If you cannot meet this requirement without corrective lenses, you will be given a license with an “A” restriction. An “A” restriction means you must always wear your glasses or contact lenses when driving.
A test of visual field may also be given to check how far you can see to the side while keeping your eyes straight ahead.
Drivers who visit an MVD office for vehicle title and registration services may be required to update this vision exam.
