Niagara County Clerk Joseph A. Jastrzemski said time is running out for the nearly 800 motorists in Niagara County have who renewed their license between 3/1/2020 and 8/31/2021 during the COVID-10 pandemic by self-certifying their vision but have failed to submit the results.
“New York State will begin suspensions of drivers’ licenses on December 1 for those who have ignored repeated requests to submit the required vision test,” said Jastrzemski. “This is our last call to get this done and avoid suspension.”
Jastrzemski said the fastest and easiest way to comply is to visit a local DMV office where a person can have their vision checked free of charge and DMV employees will handle submitting the results to the state. Alternatively, a person may be tested by an approved provider and the provider will submit the results to the DMV. If you pass a test from a provider not approved by the DMV, the provider must complete a vision test report and you must submit it. Submissions to DMV can be made electronically or by mail.
