Hi -

We are moving into PA, so we went to PennDot to transfer our licenses.... I failed my vision test due to some prior vision issues. They had me take a form to my eye doctor to have filled out and brought back for a second try.

My corrected vision for both eyes is 20/50. Visual range over 120 degrees

I've had a license for almost 10 years with no prior accidents, no issues, only some minor mishaps with deer. My previous license had restrictions for corrective lenses and side mirrors.

I am trying to figure out if those will still be my restrictions. I have a bad feeling that restrictions might be placed for daytime driving only??? From what I've read, I can't determine what will actually happen. I've seen anything worse than 20/40, you can't drive at night. I've also seen as long as it's better than 20/70 there's no night driving restriction.

Any input? Hopefully good news for a new PA resident

Have you seen an optometrist or ophthalmologist? They know the rules. I had a corneal edema a while back due to an eye injury, which impaired the vision in one eye and the optometrist told me that he was obligated to report this to PennDOT. Nothing came of that though.

We did. They said that the state may or may not put a restriction on the license for driving during daylight only. I really hope that's not what it comes out to be.
