Physical/Vision Standards

Physical Standards

The Secretary of State staff will ask you a few general health questions as part of the screening procedure. Your application may be denied pending additional medical information should the Secretary of State staff believe your physical condition might prevent you from safely operating a motor vehicle.

Vision Standards

You will be given a vision test to determine if your vision meets minimum standards. If corrective lenses are needed to pass the test, your driver's license will show you must wear corrective lenses while driving. If you fail the vision test, your eye-care specialist must complete a vision statement. A favorable vision statement means a driver's license can be issued. Sometimes special driving limitations, such as "daytime driving only," will be required if a vision statement indicates it. If the vision statement is not favorable, your driver's license application will be denied.
