EyeSight Examination

  • If the applicant does not have a valid driver’s license or learner’s permit, then he will be required to have an eyesight examination. The eye exam must be completed and filled out using the correct Department of Transport form. Non-Department of Transportation forms will be most likely rejected by the department that is issuing the Skippers ticket. The eyesight test can be carried out by any medical professional.
