During the 30 hour classroom phase of Driver Education, a DMV representative will visit the classroom to conduct a vision and medical screening of all the students. Students who successfully complete this screening are issued a Restricted Instruction Permit which allows the student to drive with our instructor for the purposes of Driver Education training.
If it is found that a student has failed their eye exam and needs corrective lenses, it is a two-step process in order for the student to be put in line to drive with NCDS. First, the DMV representative will issue a Vision Specialist Form or “804 form” to the student on the day of the vision and medical screening. Students who are issued an 804 form will need to take it to a vision specialist where they will need a vision screening and the doctor will need to fill out the 804 form. If corrective lenses are prescribed by the vision specialist, the student will be required to wear them any time they are driving.
Secondly, once the student has the 804 form filled out by the eye doctor, the student will need to take that form to the DMV to obtain a signature on the RIP form. Once the RIP form signed, please return the form the NCDS office so the student can be placed in line to drive.
STUDENTS WILL NOT BE PLACED ON A BEHIND-THE-WHEEL DRIVING LIST UNTIL THEY HAVE PASSED THE VISION SCREENING GIVEN BY DMV OFFICIAL AND TURNED IN THEIR SIGNED RIP FORM TO THE NCDS OFFICE.
