Deadline day: Thousands of New York drivers face license suspension over vision test requirement

Today poses a looming risk for tens of thousands of New York drivers, as failure to provide proof of a vision test could result in license suspension, particularly for those who renewed their licenses virtually during the pandemic months.
Under the mandate issued by the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV), individuals who renewed their licenses remotely during the pandemic must present evidence of a vision test to the DMV or face potential license suspension.
In an effort to assist affected drivers, the DMV's website outlines various options for completing the required vision test. Accessible resources are available to simplify the process, aiming to facilitate compliance with the mandate.
