Driving for life

Driving is fundamental to our everyday lives, especially in Queensland! Driving provides us with independence, access to family, friends, essential medical services, work and hobbies, and even helps us move around when our mobility declines.

Being older does not automatically make someone an unsafe driver. Older drivers are generally conscientious, controlled, and safe. It is ability, not age, that determines a person’s safety behind the wheel. In this respect, older drivers should continue to drive for as long as it is safe to do so.

However, driving may become difficult, and unsafe if the aging process is affected by health issues. Medical conditions and associated medications can either subtly or significantly impact driving safety.

For  more information on helping older drivers to stay safe on the roads, please download our driving manual or contact us today on 1800 639 331.
