Lifetime license in Germany

From a reader

In Germany you keep your license for life unless you do something really bad like causing a very serious accident. However, this goes for everybody – age has nothing to do with it!


I would like to see the law changed to the way it is in Germany.
No punishment unless you have done something.
Particularly older people all should drive a car to get from A to B ! Their weak joints stop them from walking
about, but are no obstacle when driving, so what is the problem here?
