  • In addition, complete a driver’s license application Form BA-208 (found only at motor vehicle agencies) and provide verification of your condition from a physician or audiologist.
  • You may also call the MVC’s Customer Support Line at 609-292-6500 to request that a Form BA-208 be mailed to you.
