Should old people have to retake their driving tests?

  • There old ok

  • Yes they should

    Elderly people tend to drive a bit slower I have noticed. Also, sometimes their hearing and seeing isn't 100%. It is risky to have them on the roads, (not unlike a teen who is also required to take a driver's test). I feel that if we had laws requiring the people above a certain age to retake their driver's tests, this could reduce accidents on the roads.

  • I think they shoull at least retake a test

    They can have mental absence at some point it can be risky to let a elderly take a steering wheel and let them drive through the city accidents can be made with out a refreshments to the human mind-it is like going through high school with out the middle school information like you got brained not to do anything

  • Age is not the reason for accidents.

    Immaturity, texting, talking on cell phone, drinking, taking drugs, and reckless at risk behaviors create accidents. Let's police these befit we add another hurtle to people whose only crime is living longer. Hopefully one day you will be old. Be careful of laws that will limit your Liberty, just because you are too young to see the future.

  • They are fine

    Let them be. They have just the same right as you all... They are not young but they are much more experienced then some of you drivers out there. The people you all should be worried about is these teens today, i mean c'mon they are ridiculous getting all drunk and running into things. It's almost like they have lost their minds. I'm for the old people all the way

  • They are no different

    If they should have to retake there test the rest of us should to. They are not that bad compared to some other drivers. Driving is not all about haveing super reflexes, hearing, and pariferal vision. Although these things certainly can save an accident. Knowing the rules of the road, and knowing how to drive safely without making stupid decisions is way more important. As far as elderly drivers go they are just as bad as a majority of us

  • Only a minority of the elderly do not self-regulate their driving

    Although older people have a greater chance of developing a condition that impairs their driving ability, most recognize changes when they do occur and will adjust their driving accordingly. Older people do not necessarily lose their ability to access their own driving ability just because they have reached a certain age. Re-assessment should be based on functional ability, not age alone.

  • Old people can drive

    When elderly people get older then they get wiser so if you were an old man or women would you want to retake the test to get your license NO ! So let the poor old people do what they want and keep your stupid pinion out of it. Just let them do what they want to do.

Absolutely. Older citizens become slower and reflexes are not as sharp. Vision needs to be retested also. If they do fail their driving tests the State or County should provide FREE transportation for doctor or shopping visits.

Don't know if this helps but I had a great-grand aunt who was still had her license and drove one last time at 95 or older. Nothing happened when she drove but we were terribly nervous.
