Driving Test Accreditation

our services

Having good eyesight is not only crucial to ensure your safety (as well as others’ safety) while you are on the road—it is also required by law.

In Singapore, drivers of all vehicle classes under 65 years old have to undergo a vision test at driving centres before they can obtain their driving license. On the other hand, drivers above the age of 65 years old (for Class 2 and 3 categories) will have to undergo a medical exam once every 3 years to be certified fit to drive. Furthermore, if you are a Singapore citizen or Permanent Resident (PR), you will not need to renew your licence until you are 65 years old.

Driving Test Accreditation

Basically, your vision must be deemed satisfactory enough to ensure that you can:

  • maintain a clear central and peripheral view
  • read road signs and traffic signals
  • avoid road hazards and obstructions
  • be mindful of pedestrians and other vehicles
  • judge distances between you and the vehicle in front of you
  • have clear night vision

To that end, all potential drivers must ensure that their visual acuity is satisfactory; that their colour vision is good enough to identify red, green and amber lights; that they do not have significant visual field defects; and that they do not have double vision of any degree.

At Lumin Eye Specialists, we offer eyesight assessment tests that will help you determine whether you are fit to drive. Our driving license accreditation service includes:

  • Vision assessment
  • Colour vision test

If you require a comprehensive vision test for the purposes of your driving license accreditation, our experienced ophthalmologists are always ready to help.
