An X condition on your driver’s licence photo card indicates that you require glasses or corrective lenses for driving.
If you need eyeglasses or contact lenses while you are driving, you must bring them on the day of your vision test and optionally wear them while looking into the screen reader testing equipment.
It is common for eyes to change over time. As a licensed driver, you must keep your licence up to date. If you start wearing glasses or corrective lenses while driving, you must add an X condition to your licence at a DriveTest Centre or ServiceOntario. You do not need a vision test to add the X condition.
If you no longer require glasses or corrective lenses for driving, you can have the condition removed by visiting a DriveTest Centre to either:
- Complete a vision test.
- Submit a completed vision form from your vision specialist. The vision form must have a complete reading recorded on the document for all applicable fields (i.e., both eyes, horizontal visual field results). Vision examination results are valid for six months.
There is no charge for adding or removing the X condition from your licence at a DriveTest Centre.
