Department of Motor Vehicle (DMV): Older adults

Printer-friendly version

Drivers are required to self-report medical conditions that may impede their driving skills. The DMV is required to investigate the self-reported conditions, reports received from law enforcement, and medical professionals. Drivers are then required to provide adequate documentation from their primary physician to obtain or renew their license. 

License renewal occurs every 8 years. Adults (aged 55+) must renew their license in-person every 5 years.
