Drivers Vision Screening
A free visual screening will be done
to determine if your vision is suitable for driving. This screening
is not a professional eye exam but tests your visual acuity and peripheral
visual fields. We will issue you with a certificate that confirms that
the bearer has undergone a screening in compliance with Regulation 102
of the National Road Traffic Act ( Act 93 of 1996)
If you need to wear glasses or contact lenses
