A big wall at 75 years old. A strategy book to ensure you pass the “driving license cognitive function test” that elderly drivers have trouble with
*Brain activity is the best way to pass the test. A reassuring book to help you do that*
When I turned 75, I faced a “big wall” when renewing my driver’s license. That is the “Driver’s License Cognitive Function Test.”

Drivers over the age of 75 will not be allowed to renew their licenses unless they pass this test. In fact, this is so difficult that it cannot be underestimated. It’s not a complicated test, but if you go into it without any preparation, you’re sure to panic during the actual test.

This book is a book that allows you to familiarize yourself with the questions in advance and train your brain so that you can demonstrate your abilities in the actual situation. What’s more, brain activity also strengthens your “driving brain,” so it’s perfect training for people who want to continue driving safely.

■The fact that 8.1% of Japanese people with a driver’s license are elderly drivers aged 75 or older
The number of people with driver’s licenses is approximately 81.99 million. Of these, 23.5% (approximately 19.27 million people) hold a driver’s license among people aged 65 and over. Furthermore, for those aged 75 and over, the figure rises to 8.1% (approximately 6.67 million people) (National Police Agency Statistics/2020). In other words, 8.1% of Japanese people with a driver’s license are elderly drivers aged 75 or older.

However, it is true that some elderly people develop symptoms such as dementia that prevent them from driving a car. There is no end to the number of tragic traffic accidents caused by elderly drivers due to dementia or decline in physical function. Against this background, the National Police Agency is conducting a “cognitive function test” for “elderly drivers aged 75 and over” when renewing their driver’s licenses.
Many elderly drivers may be worried, thinking, “I haven’t had a test since I was young…Will I be okay?” I think it’s natural. However, as long as you are prepared, there is nothing to worry about. This book will relieve the anxiety of those taking the test for the first time and help them pass the test.
■A neurologist and the car specialized media “Best Car” team up! Tsukamoto, a specialist in neurology, is currently involved in specialized treatment of cranial nerve diseases at Tokyo Medical University Ibaraki Medical Center, and also conducts research on early detection and prevention of dementia.
With Mr. Hiroshi as the general supervisor, the car specialized media “Best Car” is responsible for editing. Condensed into one book are the “measures” for elderly drivers aged 75 and above to pass the “Driver’s License Cognitive Function Test” that they take when renewing their license!

* ■Explanation of the mechanism for renewing driver’s license for elderly drivers aged 75 and over*
* ■You can tell because it’s the “best car”! Accidents that elderly people are prone to and how to deal with them*
* ■Six “driving brains” necessary to extend “driving life”*
* ■Challenge actual test questions! Cognitive function test mock test* * ■“Two-week drill” that strengthens the six “driving brains” and trains the driving brain *
It is composed of five parts, and the content is “easy to read”, “informative”, and “enjoyable” no matter where you read it. “An example of a two-week drill (from this book)”

A particular strength of this book is the “2-week drill” that strengthens the 6 “driving brain” listed in the 5th book and trains the driving brain. Under the supervision of Dr. Tsukamoto, a neurologist, we set up a period of two weeks and conducted intensive drills on the first day and drills on the second day, as per the plan, “Effective for brain activation!” 14 days worth of drills are posted in an easy-to-understand manner with the date added.

■2 weeks of brain activity drills will naturally help you acquire 6 “driving brain skills”!
By doing this “two-week drill” on a daily basis, the six “driving brains” of “judgment,” “concentration/attention,” “execution,” “memory,” “forecasting,” and “visual-spatial cognition” will naturally develop. In addition, it is said to be effective against dementia.

A great value book that you can use repeatedly in your daily life even after your license is renewed. This book is perfect for someone who is taking a test for the first time, or as a gift for a father or mother over 75 years old.
