What do I need to know about laws and resources in my state?

Each state sets their own requirements for older driver licensing and renewal. Some require vision or other testing at various ages and others do not. Some states require doctors to report individuals who should no longer be driving due to the effect of various medical conditions, medications, or functional/cognitive capability and other don’t. States also allow an individual, whether it is a medical professional, family member, caregiver, or member of the public, to report drivers who are considered to not be safe driving. You can access My State Info for a link to the Department of Motor Vehicle Administration page regarding older driver licensing requirements in your state.

My State Info also includes information to find professionals (Driving Rehabilitation Specialists) who can help assess your driving skills and identify ways to improve your safety through modifications to your vehicle and/or changes in habits. You will also find access to any driver training or related services to refresh driving skills.

Finally, My State Info will also provide links to additional resources to identify services and supports available in your area that you may find helpful as you consider reducing your time behind the wheel. This might include public and private alternate transportation services – both paid and volunteer – or other avenues to explore.
