Department of Motor Vehicle (DMV): Older adults

Printer-friendly version

The DMV is required to investigate any self-reported health 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. The “Medical Requirements” and forms are available HERE

License renewal occurs every 5 years. Older adults (age 70+) must submit a vision test.
