A new service will allow drivers to get their vision screening done before having to renew their license.
Maryland drivers will soon be able to skip the trip to the MVA with a new service that allows drivers to get their vision screening done before having to renew their license.
Buel Young, with the MVA, said a driver can visit their eye doctor for an eye exam, get a screening test done, and have them submit the information electronically to the MVA. One business day later, the driver can renew their license.
"The individual can ultimately do their registration online, at an MVA kiosk or if they choose to visit one of our offices, they can skip the screening portion of the renewal process, which will once again save everyone time," Young said.
Vision results are valid for 12 months from their date of the exam. All Maryland drivers who are 40 or older must have their vision examined with each renewal period and those under 40 need a vision exam every other renewal period.
