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. 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 it is found that a student has failed their eye exam and needs corrective lenses, the DMV representative will issue an “804 form” to the student on the day of the vision and medical screening. If your student forgot to bring their corrective lenses to class on the day of the DMV vision test and you feel that they failed the screening due to this, then your student will need to contact the Lead Teacher at their high school to inquire about the next opportunity that a DMV officer will come back to their school to do this testing. Students must be present on the day that the Lead Teacher assigns them to come back for an eye screening, or they will not have a Restricted Instruction Permit on file with Jordan Driving School. Students will not be scheduled for their behind-the-wheel time until this exam and the DMV signature has been obtained.
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.
Once the student has the 804 form filled out by the eye doctor, it will need to be returned to the Lead Teacher at the high school. We will attach the 804 form to the student’s Restricted Instruction Permit, and will, if everything has been filled out correctly, have the DMV representative sign off on it the next time they come to the school to do vision screenings.
Once the Lead Teacher has received the 804 form and the DMV representative has seen the 804 form and signed the student’s Restricted Instruction Permit, the student will be placed on the driving list to be called by one of our certified Driver Education teachers.
STUDENTS WILL NOT BE PLACED ON A BEHIND-THE-WHEEL DRIVING LIST UNTIL THEY HAVE TAKEN AND PASSED THE VISION SCREENING GIVEN BY A SCHOOL BUS AND TRAFFIC SAFETY OFFICIAL AT THEIR HIGH SCHOOL.
