Seventy-one per cent of employers believe that company car insurance premiums should go down if they can prove their employees have recently passed a full eye examination and sight test.

The research, carried out by Specsavers Corporate Eyecare, revealed that employers were more likely to choose an insurance company if eyesight tests were offered as part of the company car insurance policy, with seventy-four per cent of employers saying a free eye exam and sight test as part of a company car insurance policy would be a deciding factor in their choice of insurance provider.

One in three drivers would fail an eyesight test, according to recent research. According to legislation, a driver must be able to read (with contact lenses or glasses if necessary) a car number plate made after September 2001 from 20 metres away.

A spokesperson from Cost.co.uk said:

“Eyesight is extremely important for identifying any dangers on the road and it is extremely important to ensure drivers are wearing correcting eyewear should they need it. As eyesight is essential to being a safe driver, it is understandable that employers are calling for cheaper premiums for people who have passed an eye examination.”
