    • 4. Recognize the colors of traffic signals and devices showing standard red, green, and amber.
  15. (T/F) Drivers with monocular vision can be considered for the Federal Vision Exemption Program for monocular vision.
    FALSE.  Monocular vision is disqualifying for operating a CMV

    It is worth noting that the Medical Exemption Study Program in 2006 showed that monocular commercial drivers had no significant differences in safe operation.
  16. (T/F) The medical examiner can qualify a driver who wears contact lenses that correct for distant acuity in one eye and for near acuity in the other.
    FALSE.

    Contact lenses that correct vision in one eye for distant acuity and vision in the other eye for near acuity are not acceptable for meeting commercial driving qualification requirements.
  17. (T/F) Telescopic lenses that redirect peripheral vision to compensate for loss of central vision are not acceptable corrective lenses for meeting commercial driving qualification requirements.
    TRUE
  18. (T/F) For the Color Vision Test, true color recognition is required for safe driving.
    FALSE.

    True color recognition is not required for safe driving as long as the driver can perceive a difference between standard red, amber, and green traffic signals.
  19. Driver with monocular vision who is applying for or has a federal exemption or is qualified by operation of 49 CFR 391.64 must have a(n) _____ physical examination.

    C) biennial
    D) semiannual
    B) annual

  20. What are noted when conducting physical examination and evaluation of the driver's ear?
    • 1. Abnormalities of the ear canal and tympanic membrane.
    • 2. Whisper test and/or audiometric results (in American National Standards Institute [ANSI] standard units), as indicated.
    • 3. Presence or absence of a hearing aid and whether required to meet the standard.
