New York State Drivers Must Do This Now Or Have Their Licenses Suspended
Some drivers in New York State are at imminent risk of having their licenses suspended if they don't take action immediately. A policy implemented during the COVID-19 pandemic is behind the upcoming suspensions.
You may be at risk if your license expired between March 1, 2020, and August 31, 2021, and you renewed it online and submitted a self-certified vision test. The pandemic policy allowed drivers to defer their vision tests, which are required for renewal. Now, the DMV's deadline has arrived. You will need to take a vision test and submit your results as soon as possible.
Here's What You Need To Do To Avoid Having Your Driver's License Suspended
You will need to take a vision test. If you take and pass your test with an NYS-approved provider, you won't need to send the vision test results to the DMV because the provider will enter the results for you. You can find a state-approved provider here.
If you chose to take your vision test at a provider not approved by the state, they will need to complete an MV-619 Vision Test Report, which you can find here, and you must submit it to the DMV. You can send it in electronically or via snail mail to:
License Production Bureau
PO Box 2688-ESP
Albany, NY 12220-0668
Attn: Vision Registry
Do not mail anything other than your completed MV-619 test to the address listed above.
Your local DMV can also test your vision.
