Mature Drivers

There are nearly 1.5 million licensed drivers aged 65 and older in the Commonwealth, making up 17% of Pennsylvania's driving population. Pennsylvania is the second largest state in terms of population that is 65 or older. State Data Center statistics indicate that the number of Pennsylvanians 65 and older will increase 21% by the year 2020.

With Pennsylvania being a state with a very rural population, it is difficult for people to function without transportation. The loss of mobility can be devastating to the lives of older Pennsylvanians. Many older people are capable of driving safely, and have a lifetime of valuable driving experience to draw upon. PennDOT has created this page to provide access to information of interest to mature drivers and their families.
