Should there be a specified age to retake your practical driving test?As someone who is nearing 70 I do not feel that I need to take a driving test, I have good eyesight, hearing and responses but my 90 yr old mother really should not be driving. She renewed her licence and only needed to fill in a form stating she was fit and well, no doctor's opinion needed. While the government is increasing the retirement age those age 70 may well need their car to get to work but there is a need for some sort of medical check for older people to ensure they are fit to drive and not to just fill in a form themselves. Maybe older folk should do the same as younger people and get a black box fitted, this would show how well they drive and insurance premiums could be adjusted accordingly.
