In a recent pole more than half of all young motorists reckon drivers should have to resit their driving test once they hit 60 years of age!

Sixty per cent of car users aged 18 – 34 questioned said they felt road safety in the UK would be improved if older motorists had to periodically take a mandatory refresher exam.

Across all age groups, 35 per cent said such a mature driver test should be introduced.

At present, drivers are required to renew their licence at 70 – and every three years afterwards – but it seems crazy they do not have to prove their continuing fitness behind the wheel.
