Authorized Online Vision Screening Provider

Cleared to Drive is an authorized online vision test provider. You can find us in the NY DMV Vision Registry or search for us in the SC Board of Optometry, which allows us to submit your online vision test results directly to the NY DMV or the SCDMV on your behalf. When you pass your vision test with us the DMV will already have your results in their computer system. You won’t need to do anything else (other than, for South Carolina residents, to provide the vision screening reference number we’ll send you) to prove that you have met the vision test requirement to the DMV!

Founded by a Licensed Optometrist

Cleared to Drive is your online, optometrist-certified option for completing the vision test requirement for license renewal from the comfort of your home.

Our founding optometrist, Dr. Kerinna McDonald (New York State License number TUV008157 and South Carolina License #2244), will review your records and ensure that the DMV receives accurate and complete vision test results for you. 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, because the DMV will receive your results immediately electronically.

New York State requires that drivers pass a vision screening before they renew their license. Similary, South Carolina introduced a vision requirement that was implemented starting October 1st of last year. We are one of the three main ways you can complete this vision test requirement for the DMV (the other two being at the DMV and in person with a healthcare provider in your community). We are looking forward to ensuring you meet the DMV’s vision requirements from the comfort of your home and getting you on your way to renewing your license!

No matter how you do it, make your plan to get your vision checked today. Happy trails with your newly renewed license!
