People are living and driving longer than ever before, with little preparation for transitioning to being non-drivers. This study investigated driving expectations among drivers age 65 and older, including sociodemographic and driving context predictors. Cross-sectional data from 349 older drivers were explored to determine variation in how many years they expected to continue driving.
