Older drivers are involved in fewer crashes than other age groups. They tend to drive conservatively, travel fewer kilometres than other drivers and restrict their driving to times and situations in which they feel safe.

The NZTA have developed a self assessment tool that can help senior drivers to examine and compare their skills with the requirements for safe driving. There are suggestions to improve each driving skill that is identified as an area to focus on after completing the self assessment.

They also have some great resources at the following webpage including : The road ahead: transport options for seniors, The cost of running a vehicle and supporting senior drivers
