 Official: relaxing the age limit for small car drivers license and abolishing the 70 year old limit

One is to relax the age of applying for small car driving license. The upper age limit for applying for driving license of small cars, small automatic transmission vehicles and mopeds is adjusted from 70 years old to no limit. For those who are over 70 years old and obtain driving licenses, tests on memory, judgment, reaction ability and other abilities shall be increased, and physical examination shall be conducted once a year and physical examination certificate shall be submitted. This is to adapt to the new needs of aging social development, which not only facilitates the elderly to obtain driving license, but also ensures that the physical conditions meet the requirements of safe driving, which is also a common practice in most countries in the world.

Third, expand the scope of medical institutions. With the development of public health in China, the professional level and service ability of medical institutions have been significantly improved. The coverage of urban and rural areas is becoming wider and wider, and more and more medical institutions have the ability of driver physical examination. In this reform, for those who need to submit the certificate of physical conditions to apply for motor vehicle drivers license, the medical institutions at or above the county level or regimental level will be expanded to hospitals above grade II, township health centers, community health service centers, and health examination centers that meet the health examination qualifications, so as to facilitate physical examination nearby.

[Liu Yupeng, deputy director of Traffic Management Bureau of the Ministry of public security] in addition, the measures to facilitate the sharing of vehicles by families of disabled people have been introduced. For those who hold small automatic transmission driving license (C2) or more, they can drive small automatic passenger cars for the disabled in the upper limbs, which will facilitate the sharing of vehicles by family members of disabled persons and other personnel serving the disabled, so as to better protect the disabled Rights and interests of the sick. Thank you.
