    I wear glasses. My driving instructor did my eyesight test the other week and I struggled reading the plate. I had an eye test today and my optician told me that I DO meet the requirements for driving. Would I be able to tell or maybe get some sort of confirmation for this Incase I can’t read it on my test? I really want to pass and I know this will be what I fail on.

    that's strange. Perhaps go back and tell your optician this, so you can get a stronger prescription of glasses? With the right glasses, this shouldn't be a problem, and i really do doubt that the examiner will accept a letter of confirmation or anything like that tbh.

    If you can't read of a numberplate from the required distance at any given time, you're not fit to drive according to the DSA rules, so your optician's opinion means nothing to them.

    Sometimes your eyesight gets a bit worse when you are nervous or tired, it might be the case. If it continues you can ask to recheck it and wear stronger glasses just for driving. I know you don't have to be 20/20 to legally drive, but sometimes it is better having 20/20 vision on the road.
