This sounds like a good plan. I'm a teenager and I know I'm not the best drivers, so I stay away from driveways and try not to go far from home when I rains, but I have several friends who are worse drivers than myself and don't take such precautions. I really do think we need more extensive Driver's ed programs. In my state (NC) all you need to do is to read through some material on the internet, take a 3-day course, and practice driving with a parent for 6 months (which many parents don't even let their children do). After that, some kids assume that just because they have a license that they are apt drivers, which really isn't true at all.
Long story short, I would agree with you. Things change over time and we need to check both the visual and mental aptitude of all drivers regularly.
