Older Drivers

Experienced drivers are, in general, safer than those with less experience but as we age, our health and fitness, often including our eyesight, physical condition and reaction times, begins to decline.

Recognise whether and how your driving is changing and decide what you can do to cope with these changes and find help, such as medical advice, driving assessments and training and vehicle adaptations
