Driver's license and learner's permit renewal; certain older applicants. Lowers from 75 years old to 70 years old the age at which a person shall not be issued a driver's license for a period of more than five years and at which an applicant for a driver's license or learner's permit renewal is required to appear in person and pass a vision examination or present a report of a vision examination. The bill requires applicants for a driver's license or learner's permit renewal that are 70 years of age or older to provide a certification by a physician that the applicant is mentally and physically capable of operating a motor vehicle. The bill authorizes the Department of Motor Vehicles Commissioner to issue a temporary license or permit to an applicant that does not have the certification but is otherwise eligible for renewal. The bill requires the Commissioner to establish a process whereby an applicant that is unable to obtain a certificate of fitness to drive may be evaluated to determine his fitness to drive.
