Is Cleared to Drive a government agency or a part of the DMV?

We’re an Independent Authorized Provider

We are not part of the DMV. Cleared to Drive is a member of the NY DMV’s Vision Registry, which authorizes outside providers like us to administer the vision screenings required for driver’s license renewal. Our exam is designed to determine if you meet the minimum requirements to drive in the state of New York.

Our founder and optometrist, Dr. Kerinna McDonald, is licensed in the state of New York, allowing us to input your vision test results directly electronically into the NY DMV’s computer system, meaning that they get the results immediately and you can renew your license online on the DMV’s website as soon as you pass the test. This also means there are no vision forms that you have to fill out and submit to the DMV to prove you have passed your vision test; we do that for you.
