A minor but important detail could lead to some New Yorkers having their license suspended.

I'll be honest, I was one of those 150,000! But there is a quick and easy solution if you are one of them as well.

Now the first thing you need to know, this affects you if you renewed your license between March 1, 2020, and August 31, 2021, according to the Buffalo News. Usually, you would have to go into your local DMV to pass an eye test to renew your license.


With everything going remote for a time during the COVID pandemic, the DMV left it up to drivers to get their eye tests done and then submit the results to the state. Maybe like me, you completely forgot to do this!

If you did forget, you probably got a letter in the mail recently reminding you to do this ASAP or your license could be suspended. The good news is the solution is simple. You can go to your local DMV branch to take your eye test, or The Buffalo News says you can go to an approved provider to have it done and they will submit the results for you.
