Driving laws for seniors may vary per state, but tests are generally the same no matter what age you are. When you reach the ages of 60 to 65, depending on the state, you may have to renew your driver’s license in person, as opposed to doing it online. This way, professionals can determine if you are fit to drive, depending on your health conditions.
Older drivers are mandated by most states to renew their licenses more often, compared to younger drivers. While senior drivers are proven to be the safest drivers on the road, they are also more likely to be injured or killed in road accidents. It’s best to follow the recommended precautions to ensure road safety for seniors at all times.
