Evaluation of the NSW older driver licensing reforms
Keywords: Older Drivers & Road Users
Submission Date: 2019
This evaluation assessed the impact of a set of licensing changes for older drivers that were implemented in NSW in 2008. These changes were designed to balance the safety of road users and the general community with the continuing independence and mobility of older drivers. The evaluation showed that, overall the changes did not negatively impact safety and were generally supported by older drivers and their family members and carers. Opportunities to enhance the current system were also identified.
