In particular the person of the driver is problematic not only from the perspective of the knowledge, skills and attitudes, but also of the psychological and physical condition of man. Post, beside the presentation of the exploratory investigation for the elderly, offers a possible solution to the preventive course for seniors, including experience with his pilot background check. In the framework of an exploratory investigation, they were compared drivers – women and men not only by their knowledge (knowledge in the area of rules of traffic on the road and the theory of safe driving), but also their practical skills in the management of the motor vehicle in the simulated driving skill. Exploratory investigation at the same time included the views of respondents – the elderly on the current situation in the transport sector.
