The New York State DMV wants to make driving as safe as possible.

As you grow older, it's only natural to want to continue driving for as long as you can do so safely. There are many things you can do to drive safely and watch for the warning signs that you might want to limit or stop driving - whether temporarily or permanently.

You might talk to your doctor, friends and family to assess your current driving abilities. The American Association of Retired Persons (AARP) makes available both classroom and online courses to help drivers improve their driving skills. The courses teach methods that can improve the ability of an older motorist to drive safely.
