Register Your Practice with the Maryland Motor Vehicle Administration
The Maryland Department of Transportation Motor Vehicle Administration (MDOT MVA) is trying to distribute information Maryland ophthalmologists to encourage the use of our existing platform for electronic transmission of vision test results to the MDOT MVA. Providers who do this allow patients to fulfill the vision test requirement for licensure without having to take a vision test in an MDOT MVA branch. Ultimately, this allows many applicants to renew their driver’s license without having to visit a branch in person, which in the current health environment is something we are trying to enable and promote to the greatest extent possible.
An individual still has to go to a provider to get an in-person eye exam; it just allows the person to then get the renewal online and not in person at the MVA. But, the provider needs to be registered with MVA.
Here is a link to the site and an FAQ. https://mva.maryland.gov/online-services/Pages/vision-faqs.aspx. The MVA is trying to encourage ophthalmologists to use this process (which is already an established process) and become an MVA Online Vision Certification Provider so that individuals can renew their licenses on-line.
