Getting a driver license: Medical and vision screening

When you apply for a driver license, or if we become aware of a vision or medical issue that may impact your driving, you must have a vision or medical screening at a driver licensing office.


We have temporarily suspended vision testing at our driver licensing offices due to Coronavirus (COVID-19).


You'll be asked if you have a physical or mental condition, or if are you taking any medication which could impair your ability to operate a motor vehicle. We may require you to get an examination by a medical specialist and submit a Physical Examination Report (English, Español, Русский, and more).
