(WNY News Now) – Time is running out for almost 800 motorists in Niagara County who, having renewed their licenses between 3/1/2020 and 8/31/2021, failed to submit their vision test results, warns County Clerk Joseph A. Jastrzemski.
Niagara County – Niagara County Clerk Joseph A. Jastrzemski issued a final warning to approximately 800 drivers in the county who renewed their licenses between March 1, 2020, and August 31, 2021, during the COVID-19 pandemic. These individuals had self-certified their vision but have yet to submit the required test results.
Jastrzemski emphasized that the New York State Department will initiate license suspensions on December 1 for those who have neglected repeated requests to provide the necessary vision test documentation. Urging compliance, he stated, “This is our last call to get this done and avoid suspension.”
To swiftly meet the requirement, individuals are encouraged to visit a local DMV office, where a free vision check will be conducted, and DMV staff will handle the submission of results to the state. Alternatively, approved providers can conduct the test, with results automatically submitted to the DMV. For tests from non-approved providers, a vision test report must be completed and submitted. Electronic or mail submissions to the DMV are accepted.
