At what age do you have to retake your driving test?

My grandfather is getting to turn 70, and I’m pretty sure that’s the age when he’s going to have to retake his driving test to keep his license. Is that right? When do you have to retake the driving test?

Most states do not set an age at which you have to retake your driving test to keep your license. In fact,
Illinois
is the only state that requires drivers over 75 to retake their road test to maintain a valid driver’s license.
While most states don’t require senior drivers to retake their road test to keep their license, many do have additional rules drivers must follow after a specific age to maintain a valid license. Here are a few examples of those rules:
  • Drivers over a certain age may be required to renew their license in person.
  • Drivers over a certain age may be required to complete a vision test to renew their license.
  • Drivers over a certain age may be required to renew their license more frequently than younger drivers.
As you get older, you will have a few extra things to do to keep your license, but you also gain access to discounts on
car insurance
. Ask your insurance agent if your premium includes a senior discount.
