This factsheet includes 10 years of data, from 2006 to 2015. A school-transportation-related crash is a crash that involves, either directly or indirectly, a school bus body vehicle, or a non-school bus functioning as a school bus, transporting children to or from school or school-related activities. In this factsheet “school–age” children are defined as children 18 and younger.
From 2010. Driver license tests are designed to ensure that people using public roadways have a minimum level of driving skill and an awareness of safe driving practices and road laws. License applicants proceed through the administrative processes of their respective licensing agencies, and must take and pass the actual examinations. In addition to successfully navigating the testing process, young novice drivers also must adhere to graduated driver licensing (GDL) policies, which govern driving practice both before and after licensure.

Clinician’s Guide to Assessing and Counseling - Older Drivers
https://www.nhtsa.gov/document/licensing-procedure... September 15, 2013
This study examined the driver licensing procedures in all 50 States as they apply to the older (65+) driver. A literature review examined reports of possible declines in older driver capabilities and the ability of a driver licensing agency to screen for them. The review also covered studies of licensing policies and procedures that had the potential ability to reduce older driver crash rates.

From May 2013. Research has demonstrated that older drivers pose a higher risk of involvement in fatal crashes at intersections than younger drivers. Age-triggered restrictions are problematic as research shows that the majority of older people have unimpaired driving performance. Thus, it has become important to be able to identify which drivers are at risk of crashes and apply driving limitations based on this risk (instead of age alone). The objective of this project was to review the report from the 2003 University of Florida Consensus Conference as well as other important documents on similar topics, and to interview experts to obtain information about the strengths and weaknesses of these specialist-administered screening and assessment tools, self-screening instruments and training methods. This report will help to guide future research by highlighting tools and methods commonly used by clinicians that have not yet been adequately evaluated and those which may already be recommended for use. The goal was not to reach consensus but to provide a rich background from the literature combined with expert opinions in an attempt to guide decisions and research goals related to these evaluation tools
