ALBERTA DRIVERS LICENSE VISION REQUIREMENTS
In order to be a safe and proactive driver it’s important to have good vision, or the proper eyewear to attain that vision standard. While you may meet the vision requirements for the standard Class 5 license, many people are unaware that there are different prerequisites for the numerous classes of licenses. Should you have difficulties with the basic testing services available while at a registry office, you may be referred to an optometrist for further testing. If this is the case, SD Eye Care Clinics are fully capable of providing the proper exam for your specific needs.
Of course it’s important to have your eyes checked annually to always ensure that you’re viewing things as clearly as possible — however it is especially important to have an eye exam prior to taking a driving test. We recommend that parents bring in their teenagers before applying for learners or drivers licenses just to be sure their vision is in tip-top shape before hitting the roads.
