Drivers License Screening Certificates

Everyone wants the best technology and best safety features for their vehicles. However, you may have the safest vehicle on the market but if your eyesight is compromised, so is your safety.

So why not enjoy the best vehicle as well as the best eye care technology to improve your safety on the road?

Torga Optical is Committed to Encouraging Safe Driving.

Driving at night can be a daunting experience. Oncoming headlights and street lights reflecting off one’s spectacles can prevent light from passing through the lenses. Torga Optical’s Anti-Reflective Coating has been specifically designed to manage these situations. By minimising reflections, more light passes through one’s lenses, which optimises visual acuity with fewer distractions.

During the DAY, the sun’s rays as well as reflections off surfaces such as the road, other vehicles or water can also compromise your vision. With Torga Optical’s Polarised lenses, this glare is significantly reduced. Read more about the benefits of Polarised lenses by clicking here.

DriveOptix™ is a package that has been specially developed by Torga Optical to reduce the risks of driving, by optimising drivers' visual acuity.


DriveOptix™ provides you with the latest in German precision lens technology for both DAY and NIGHT time driving. When you purchase any one of Torga’s Spectacle Spectacle offers, we can apply our state-of-the-art Anti-Reflection Coating to one pair and Polarised lenses to the other.

Why is good vision so important for driving?

Many driving tasks require the use of the driver’s vision these include:

  • Seeing other vehicles around you
  • Seeing pedestrians
  • Seeing animals
  • Noticing potholes before it is too late
  • Seeing your speedometer and gauges
  • Driving with glare from the sun or oncoming headlights at night
  • Seeing road signs and markings in the distance

 When was your last eye examination?

When you last renewed your driver’s licence?

If the answer to the above question is yes here are some important points to note:

  • The licence department only conducts a basic screening of an individual’s visual ability.
  • Passing the screening at the licencing department does not mean glasses are not necessary.
  • By law, drivers do not require 20/20 vision to drive in South Africa, but many drivers could have this vision with the correct visual correction.
  • Improved vision can reduce the number of collisions on our roads.
  • A comprehensive eye examination at your nearest Torga Optical store will assess all aspects of your vision, as well as the health of the eye.

 Do you have the correct lens technology in your glasses to optimise your driving ability?

  • Lenses with poor optics will hinder rather than improve your driving ability.
  • Ensuring you have the best technology lenses for different driving conditions will aid the driver’s vision.
  • Glare is a large cause of driver’s visual discomfort, glare is experienced during the day from the sun and overcast conditions and at night from oncoming headlights and streetlights.
  • The correct prescription in the form of Polarised sunglasses for daytime and anti-reflective coated lenses for nighttime, will result in optimum driving vision.
