China will allow citizens over 70 to apply for driving licenses, on condition that their health meets the requirements for safe driving, the Ministry of Public Security announced Thursday.

From Nov. 20, citizens over 70 will be allowed to apply for driving licenses for small vehicles and mopeds, the ministry said at a press conference.

Applicants are required to pass assessments on their memory, judgment and reactions, as well as having annual health check-ups and submitting the results, said the ministry.

Considering the increasing life expectancy and improving health of Chinese citizens, more aged people will need to drive or learn to drive, said Liu Yupeng, an official with the ministry, adding that the move aims to meet the new demands of the nation's aging population.

The upper age limit eligible for driving licenses for large and medium-sized passenger or freight vehicles will be raised from 50 to 60, according to the ministry. Enditem
