National Older Driver Research and Training Center

The older population is the fastest growing segment of the U.S. population. Persons over 65 comprised 13% of the total population in 2000, and this number is expected to increase to 20% by 2030.

In the United States today, there are about 38 million licensed drivers over age 65, and by 2024, one in four drivers will be aged 65+.

Many Americans have not planned for “retirement-from-driving”. Without support, many of these older people who can no longer drive may also lose their ability to live independently in the community.
