Failing the MOD 2 eyesight test is a major fault
For obvious reasons, failing the MOD 2 eyesight test is recorded as a ‘major fault’ and will result in a Module Two test fail. Glasses/contact lenses are allowed and candidates who have any doubt about their eye health are advised to arrange an opticians eye check before booking a Module Two test.
Candidates are required to read a number plate:
- In good daylight
- Containing letters/figures that are 79.4 mm (3.1 inches) high
- At a distance of 20.5 metres for vehicles with an old-style number plate
- Or 20 metres for vehicles with a new-style number plate
- With the aid of glasses or contact lenses (if normally worn)
Any major fault will result in a fail
Candidates who are initially unable to read a number plate will be asked to sit in the waiting room whilst the examiner measures the exact distance with a tape measure. A second attempt at the exact measured distance will then be invited. Candidates who fail the MOD 2 eyesight test on this second attempt will fail the Module Two test and lose the associated test fees.
