Video: Actor Lionel Blair pits young v old in driving test

Lionel Blair, aged 84, features in an experiment comparing the skills of older and younger drivers, after it was found that nearly 17,000 motorists aged 70+ have their licence revoked.

UK law requires drivers to renew their licence every three years when they reach 704, with older drivers legally required to declare whether they are fit to drive. However, nearly half (49%) of Brits disagree with how the law currently stands and are calling for it to be changed - forcing drivers aged 70 and over to retake their driving test as well as renewing their licence once every three years.
