    I live in claifornia.
    I have good vision on left eye, bad vision on right eye. I was wondering will dot physical contact the dmv if I fail the vision test. Miraculously when i took vision test in dmv the tester was looking at the chart and I cheated and used both eyes and uncovered the good eye.

    I found a FedEx small business contractor job. They said they will hire me as soon as I pass dot physical. The Amazon small business contractor doesn't have dot physical but area where there is a lot of homeless people drunk and jaywalking. It's relatively safe,but not very clean.

    I can only take physical here Concentra will they notify dmv if I do bad on vision test. I would rather work in amazon small business dealing with homeless jaywalkers,glasses are hell for me. What are chances dot physical will pass me if I only have good vision on one eye

    Both eyes are tested separately and together. Why not take the physical with glasses on?

    Obviously he can’t afford glasses :)

    Just another driver that shouldn’t be on the road.

    Go to an eye doc and do the exam there. You can have them fill out the vision part the form.

    I don't think they're tied into the dmv as you personally have to give them the form.

    If you fail. You get an eye exam and new glasses and retest. I think you have 15 days. Or repay and test over again.

    I had to get new glasses.

    Vision must be 20/40. Doesn't matter how.

    I used to know a driver I think had a glass eye or something. One eye never moved.
