If a driver is stopped by police and found to be unable to meet the ‘standards of vision for driving’, they could receive a £1,000 fine or points on their licence, but most are likely to have their licence removed. 

It is not a legal requirement for drivers to update the DVLA if they have been prescribed corrective glasses or contact lenses since they passed their driving test, though a survey carried out by Venson showed that one in three responsible drivers had taken it upon themselves to do so.

It is important for drivers to maintain certain standards of health for your fleet to remain compliant, Jaama’s Key2 maintains and manages all this information in one place, meaning your fleet is always at optimum strength.
