Niagara County Clerk Joseph A. Jastrzemski said time is running out for the nearly 800 motorists in Niagara County who renewed their license between March 1, 2020, and Aug. 31, 2021 (during the COVID-10 pandemic) by self-certifying their vision but failed to submit the results.
“New York state will begin suspensions of drivers' licenses on Dec. 1 for those who have ignored repeated requests to submit the required vision test,” Jastrzemski said. “This is our last call to get this done and avoid suspension.”
Jastrzemski said the fastest and easiest way to comply is to visit a local DMV office where a person can have their vision checked free of charge. DMV employees will handle submitting the results to the state. Alternatively, a person may be tested by an approved provider and the provider will submit the results to the DMV. If one passes a test from a provider not approved by the DMV, the provider must complete a vision test report and the applicant must submit it.
Submissions to DMV can be made electronically or by mail. All the information, instructions, list of approved providers and submission link/mailing address can be found at https://dmv.ny.gov/driver-license/vision-information.
