.07 Renewal.

A. Upon application for renewal, if an individual required to submit to a vision reexamination holds a license which is not restricted to operation with bioptic telescopic lenses, and the individual cannot meet the minimum visual requirements except with the aid of bioptic telescopic lenses, a renewal license with an appropriate restriction shall be issued if the individual passes the required skills test.

B. If an individual's visual acuity has diminished to the extent that bioptic telescopic lenses are required to meet the minimum visual acuity, the individual shall convert the individual's Maryland driver's license to the noncommercial Class C driver's license combination, restricted to the operation of vehicles less than 10,000 pounds GVW.

C. Upon application for renewal, if an individual required to submit to a vision reexamination holds a license which is restricted to operation with corrective lenses or bioptic telescopic lenses, and that individual can meet the minimum visual requirements without the use of these lenses, that individual is entitled to file an application to have the restriction removed from the individual's renewal license.
