DVLA Visual Field Tests
The DVLA may require you to take a visual field eye test. There are strict rules regarding driving and eyesight in Britain. Anyone requiring to drive a vehicle must be able to see clearly at a certain distance in order to be considered safe to drive.
How does the DVLA field test work?
A visual field test measures how much ‘side’ vision you have. It is a straight forward painless eye test. Just remember when you have your test to let the optometrist know you drive for a living.
