Poor eyesight: drivers risking ban

Vision Express eye test

One in three motorists in the UK is risking a driving ban due to overdue eye tests, a new study has revealed.

Almost 30% of drivers are overdue an eye test, with 4% admitting to never having had one, according to the research for Vision Express.

Drivers with uncorrected vision which falls short of legal thresholds face potential insurance invalidation, a heavy fine, penalty licence points and even driving disqualification.

When it comes to planning a long drive, Brits are more likely to spend time stocking their vehicles with drinks and snacks, rather than checking their vision is fit to drive by having a recent eye test.
