SENIOR DRIVING RESTRICTIONS PENDING

Examinations Start at 75

SEPTEMBER 16, 2009: The Legislature's Joint Committee on Transportation has favorably released H3287, which would bring about new drivers license requirements for those age 75 and older.

Chaired by Representative Joseph Wagner (D-Chicopee) and Senator Steven Baddour (D-Methuen), the Transportation Committee redrafted the bill (H3287), which follows a proposal originally filed by Senator Brian Joyce (D-Milton) that would have required driver retesting at age 85, lowers the threshold to age 75.
