How is vision measured for the practical driving test?
At the beginning of the practical driving test drivers have to correctly read a number plate on a parked vehicle at the required distance and in good daylight. If this cannot be read it will result in a test fail and the test will not continue. The Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) are then obliged to inform DVLA of any drivers that do not meet the standard for eyesight, and the driving licence will be revoked.
If a driver reapplies for their driving licence, DVLA will ask them to have an eyesight test with DVSA at a driving test centre. If successful, the driver will still have to pass the DVSA standard eyesight test at their next practical driving test.
