Road safety

Older drivers generally drive less frequently and cover smaller distances than younger people. Despite this, drivers aged over 65 are at higher risk of an accident when compared to other age groups. 

It is important for drivers aged over 65 regularly assess their ability to drive safely. Changes in your vision, hearing, movement, medical conditions and medication can affect how you drive.

If you are unsure whether it is still safe for you to drive, you should complete the Victoria Police safety checklist.

If you find you are no longer able to drive, you may be able to access transport support services through our Aged & Community Care services or you can sure our public transport network.
