How do we accurately know if it is safe for an elderly driver to be on the road? Missouri has requirements that may help to weed out some of those that may cause danger to themselves or others because they are not fit to drive. One thing the state of Missouri requires is that you must get your license renewed upon expiration. The length of your Missouri driver’s license is valid depends on your age. After your Missouri driver’s license expires, you must renew your license.
- 18-20 years old, or 70 years old and over, your license is valid for three years.
- 21-69 years old, your license is valid for six years.
As a Missouri car accident lawyer, when you renew your Missouri driver’s license, our state requires you to pass vision and road sign tests (along with written and driving tests, if your license has been expired for more than six months). There are some other precautions that I think should be instated to ensure safety for elderly drivers and motorists around them, click here for my article on the topic.
If you have been involved in a Missouri car accident you might not even need a lawyer. What you do need after any accident is helpful and accurate information.
