Driving gives you the freedom to go where you want to, at the time of your choosing. And in later life, your ability to drive may feel even more important to your sense of independence.

Having a car can make it easier to get to the shops or appointments, and to keep in touch with friends and family.

This guide covers things you can do to help you feel safe and confident when driving, and what the alternatives might be if you do decide to stop driving in the future.

This decision should be based only on your ability to stay safe on the roads, not on your age.

Independent Age provides clear, free and impartial advice on the issues that matter to older people and their families: care and support, money and benefits, health and mobility.
