Medical tests for older drivers to cease

Latest News >>

South Australian drivers over 70 years of age will no longer be required to have mandatory drivers licence medical testing each year for their car licence.

Minister for Health and Ageing, Jack Snelling, said removing the mandatory testing age is a key part of South Australia’s Ageing Plan, which aims to support our older residents be more active and engaged in the community.

“Compared to other states and territories across Australia, South Australia has the youngest age for a mandatory medical check, despite having the oldest mainland population,” MrSnelling said.

“While some jurisdictions have compulsory medical testing for drivers at 75 and 80 years of age, there are some who do not have aged-based testing at all and that is what South Australia will move to from 1 September, 2014.
