Agree with you Woody, I have an elderly friend who has been through the mandatory seniors driver retesting a few times. He says that there is always fairly extensive coaching of the students by the examiner to help them get the correct answers.

And if you have spent much time as a passenger with an elderly driver you know that the issues that come up are not the sort of things that cannot be evaluated with a written test i.e. attention, reaction time, coping with distractions, ability to multi-task etc.

Seems to me the retesting should include a session on a driving simulator to evaluate these factors, that would probably be more use than the written test.
