Your Questions About New Driver Car Insurance Advice
How will eyesight affect me being a private investigator?
I need some advice from some current or past private detectives since I am interested in becoming one. I have a an eye condition I was born with that means I have about 20/85 in each eye and I usually wear sunglasses too. I have trouble reading dictionary sized print and details from a distance like a persons face in another car. I do have a regular drivers license and am able to use a pistol at defensive ranges. Will my reduced vision make it impractical to consider this line of work?
I know of no state that has eyesight requirements for PI licensing. I was licensed in TX and NM, and as a manager licensed people to work for me. Here is the problem, most PI firms will start you at the basics that means hours and days of surveillance. Your condition would exclude you in most cases, unless you are monitoring a covert camera. However you would not be excluded from investigative duties such as insurance claims investigations, and other assignment. You need to sharpen your report writing skills and become proficient at photography. Lastly, you will have to find a firm that will give you a chance, but they definitely won’t if you don’t have some skills. Good luck.
