It is your responsibility to regularly assess your fitness to drive. As you age, changes naturally occur that can affect your driving. You need to monitor your health and assess your own driving ability and make sensible decisions about when and where you should drive. This includes taking into consideration any:
- permanent or long-term injury or illness you have
- changes to your physical or mental condition (including conditions affecting eyesight or hearing), and
- other factors that could affect your ability to drive (such as certain medications).
If you’re concerned about your driving, you can also ask your doctor about any conditions you have and how they affect your driving.
