Giannoulias Recommends Increasing Requirement for Driving Tests

Illinois Secretary of State Alexi Giannoulias is recommending increasing the age requirement for mandatory driving tests from 75 to 79.  Giannoulias said numbers show that seniors are among the safest drivers of any age category.  During the pandemic, the Illinois General Assembly passed a measure that temporarily raised the age of driving tests from 75 to 79.  The change is set to expire on Sunday.
