Is this legitimate?

Absolutely! We're a DMV approved online vision test and have assisted thousands of license holders from 20 years old to well into their 90s. We have stellar reviews on Trustpilot, Facebook, and across the testimonials at the bottom of this page.

Our founding optometrist, Dr. Kerinna McDonald, manages all clinical aspects of Cleared to Drive and ensures that the DMV receives accurate and complete vision test results. You'll be able to submit your driver's license renewal directly on the DMV's website as soon as you complete your vision test with us.

You can learn more about our legitimacy here, including our membership in the DMV Vision Registry.

How does it work?

It's easy! When you schedule an appointment you'll get a link to click to start your online vision test from a phone, laptop, or any device that has a camera.

First we'll confirm your identity and then adjust the size of the letters to match how big your screen is. You'll walk back 10 feet from your device and then read the letters out loud. It only takes a few minutes and you can finish the rest of your renewal online as soon as you pass!

When taking the test, make sure you have enough space to walk 10 feet away and have your driver's license or another form of photo ID with you. You can learn more about our online tests here or book an appointment now!

I took my vision test online yesterday - total relief this was possible because going to the DMV in the best of times is a pain, I really want to avoid it now. It was super simple and my license is on the way to me (according to the DMV).

Thank you for this great service!!!

Very pleasant, user friendly site. Only took a minimal amount of time to complete the license renewal process. Dr. McDonald is super to work with, and best of all, no lines to wait through, you don’t have to go to DMV office.

I highly recommend this site, you won’t regret using it!

Everyone who needs to take this test to drive or renew, this is the site to go to and the app to get. My experience with this company was excellent and staff very helpful and very courteous.

They go step by step and led me straight to the finish no problem. I want to say thank you and got my license renewed with their help.

You all provide a good service and directly or indirectly you are helping the DMV out.

With services such as yours, I don’t see why anyone would need to postpone the vision test because of fear of the pandemic when you offer an excellent alternative service to do it now.

I wanted to thank Maya for a wonderful job. She made me feel very confident about myself.

I was so happy when she said “CONGRATULATIONS” you passed your vision test! I received my license in the mail on Tuesday, December 1st.

Cleared to Drive’s online vision test let me renew my driver’s license in minutes. I didn’t even know this was possible! The price point is great considering how much time it saved.

There are a LOT of people who really need this!

It is absolutely right. Use this website with Dr. McDonald to get your vision test for your New York driver’s license. My results were in Albany, New York the next day and you will have a link to the DMV to fill your driver’s license renewal online and pay by credit card and you will even get a temporary license you can print and an email confirmation from the DMV.

They have made this very easy for us in these difficult times when every DMV is closed and you can’t do this in person right now.

Bad weather? Covid concerns? No DMV appointment? No problem. Saw Cleared to Drive during a Google search for a local vision test provider, found this, clicked, and within 15 minutes I was having a professional vision test!

I passsed! The rest of my application was completed electronically and I had a PDF of my renewed license all in minutes. I highly recommend this service.

Yes, I’m turning 50 and my driver license is expiring. I used this service for my eye test! Easy, simple and great communication through the process. I recommend it for all.

What a dream, sitting on the couch in your own home and get the driver’s license vision test done over the phone with a big “congratulations” for passing an approved test. Wow! It’s an excellent experience. Keep it up forever.

Rather than battle long lines and go out during COVID, I was able to get my DMV eye test done in minutes, in my own home and I received my renewed license within a couple of weeks. It was an amazingly easy process!!!

Communication with representative was very professional. Taking the eye exam was quick and easy. I would recommend using Cleared to Drive to anyone that needs an eye exam for getting their license renewed.

Great experience. I live in NYC, rehabbing a new knee out in Laguna Beach, CA. My NYS driver’s license expires in about one month. Only places I could find that would administer the eye test out here wanted $175 for a complete eye exam which I didn’t need.

The Cleared to Drive eye test was easy peasy and, since they sent the results to the motor vehicle bureau instantly, I renewed my license online immediately after. Highly recommended regardless if you’re out of state or want to get your eye test from home.

The lady that did my eye exam for my registration renewal was very kind. She spoke Spanish too! I couldn’t believe it, and the woman who took care of me was a big help when I didn’t understand something. Definitely recommend.

It was a very easy process done in your home and you don’t need to go anywhere. Just be ready to walk a few steps away from your device to take the vision test. My tester was remarkably pleasant to work with.

So I don’t give commercial shout-outs very often, but Cleared to Drive was able to give me a legit NYS DMV eye exam from my CELLPHONE!! 🤣

Not in New York?
