Medical fitness to drive

Eyesight tests

You only need an eyesight test when:

  • applying for your driver licence in the Northern Territory (NT) for the first time and/or
  • medical or self-assessment raises concerns about your visual ability or deteriorating fitness to drive on health grounds.

There are two ways you can have your eyesight tested:

  • at the MVR office
  • or provide a recent eye examination from your doctor or optometrist.
