Senior Drivers Booklet
Safe driving begins with you. Canadians are living longer, which explains why we’re also driving longer. As the baby boomers retire, the number of senior drivers on the road will increase too. More experience is a good thing and so is awareness of some age-related changes that can affect driving skills.
Navigating Physical Changes
As we age, our physical and mental abilities change, and some of those changes – including our vision, hearing and ability to react quickly – can affect our driving.
Watch this short video for an overview of how ageing can impact our responsiveness behind the wheel.
