Leading road safety experts have recommended raising the mandatory fitness to drive self-declaration for licence renewal from 70 to 75 years old - if proof of an eye sight test is made compulsory.


The recommendations are made by the Older Drivers Task Force in Supporting Safe Driving into Old Age, a report setting out a national older driver strategy. The Task Force, which was welcomed by Government, was managed by the Road Safety Foundation and supported by Ageas, the third largest motor insurer in the UK and a leading insurer of older drivers.
