Vision Test


New Jersey requires all first-time driving permit applicants to have their eyesight checked through a vision test. Vision tests are given at motor vehicle agencies offering driver testing services. In order to pass the vision test, you must have 20/50 visual acuity with or without corrective lenses. If you pass the test using corrective lenses, you will have a restriction on your license indicating that you must wear these corrective lenses while behind the wheel. If you fail the test, you will have to visit your doctor and complete Form ST-14 (found in any motor vehicle agency with testing facilities).
