The Indiana Horse Racing Commission (IHRC) has issued a notice that all individuals planning to obtain a 2019 Standardbred driver’s license must comply with the current eye examination regulations. Any driver must either show proof of a current eye exam in the past 12 months or show proof of a current eye exam within the past 12 months through a U.S. Trotting Association driver’s license.
The qualifications for all drivers licensed in the state of Indiana includes a minimum of 20/40 corrected vision in both eyes. If an individual is deemed legally blind in one eye, then the other eye must show 20/30 corrected vision to be eligible for a license.
All individuals applying for a 2019 Standardbred driver’s license will have until April 30, 2019 to show proof of compliance with the judges at Harrah’s Hoosier Park. For more information, stop by the IHRC licensing office at Harrah’s Hoosier Park, located in the Racing Administration building at the main entrance to the barn area.
