Failed Eye Check

During the 30 hour classroom phase of Driver Education, a representative from the School Bus and Traffic Safety Division of the DMV will come to our classrooms to conduct a vision and medical screening of all students. The only exception to this procedure is for students attending our Saturday classes (see Saturday class eye check procedures here). Students who successfully complete this screening are issued a Restricted Instruction Permit which allows a student to drive a Driver Education vehicle during their behind-the-wheel training with our certified Driver Education teachers.

If the student was absent or forgot their corrective lenses on the day of the DMV vision screening, a letter containing the appropriate paperwork to take to the DMV will be sent to the student’s home address with instructions on how to rectify the situation. Usually, this letter is mailed out approximately 2 weeks after the student’s class has ended.

Students will not be put into the "ready to drive" file until the student has taken the vision screening, and we have a completed Restricted Instruction Permit on file in the Jordan Driving School office.

Eye Checks can also be scheduled with the DMV Specialist through Sign Up Genius for students who are between 14 ½ and 17 years old. Students who are 18 years old should not sign up on Sign Up Genius. Students who are 18 years old, but are still enrolled in a public, private,or charter school or a licensed home school in Mecklenburg County must go to the DMV and apply for their permit before they can be scheduled for the Behind-the-Wheel lessons with Jordan Driving School. More information for 18-year old students can be found here.

Students must complete the classroom phase of driver education before signing up for a eye check on Sign Up Genius or you will be turned away. Also, note that students must be 14 1/2 or older to be eligible for the classroom phase of driver education and to have an eye check performed by the DMV.

Note: After receiving a vision screening by a representative of the DMV, if it is determined that a student needs to go to an eye doctor for further evaluation, the student will be issued a DL77 form by the DMV representative. Students who are issued this form will need to schedule an appointment with their eye doctor who must examine the student's vision and fill out the DL77 form. Once the DL77 form is completed by the eye doctor, students must take the completed form along with any prescribed lenses back to the School Bus and Traffic Safety division of the DMV for a second vision screening before being released to drive with a Jordan Driving School Behind-the-Wheel instructor.

Please click the link below to choose a date, location, and time to have an eye check performed. These sign ups are exclusively for Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools/Jordan Driving School program students. Please note, there will only be 40 spots available each day at each site. As the DMV gives us additional eye check dates, we will post them on Sign Up Genius.
