Q:

What are the Code 01 regulations relating to the wearing of glasses?

A:

Every driver, whatever size or class of vehicle, with a 01 restriction on the rear of their licence must always wear glasses or contact lenses if they have informed the DVLA that they require them for driving.

If your driver is stopped and officers find that he isn’t wearing his glasses or contact lenses, the DVSA or police could issue a £100 fine and 3-6 points on his driver’s licence.

The driver must report to DVLA any change to any conditions including changes to eyesight. This includes having laser surgery to correct eyesight as the 01 restriction code will  need to be removed.
