Michigan's Guide for Aging Drivers and Their Families

Michigan's Guide for Aging Driver and Families - Download

Michigan now has 1.2 million drivers 65 years old or older, and that number is growing. By 2025, one in five drivers is expected to be 65 or older.

Secretary of State Ruth Johnson knows older Michigan residents want to maintain their independence, and for many that means continuing to drive. By using smart self-management techniques to review their driving skills, older drivers can keep driving longer while limiting risks to themselves and others.

Michigan’s Guide for Aging Drivers and Their Families was developed to improve older-driver safety by providing aging drivers as well as their families and caregivers with information about the licensing process, resources that help maintain safe driving, suggest alternative transportation options and more. It helps aging drivers maintain their driver’s license for as long as it is safe for them and other road users.

The guide was developed through a collaborative partnership with the Michigan Department of Transportation, Office of Highway Safety Planning, AAA Michigan, and the Secretary of State’s Office. Please take some time to review the publication.
