Evaluation of the Older Driver

Older adults in the United States are healthier and more active than ever before. The number of adult drivers 65 years and older is increasing rapidly. However, older drivers are involved in more fatal car incidents per miles driven than any other age group except teenagers. Driving has become very important for older adults because it is critical to their independence and self-esteem. Therefore, the role of health care providers and the interprofessional team is essential to maximizing the life expectancy of driving to match the life span and activity levels of the older adult population.
