Jerry Wiseman is reflected in the rearview mirror, in Schaumburg, Ill. Mr. Wiseman and his wife, Sandy, took refresher driving classes to help them stay safe behind the wheel for many more years. Mr. Wiseman learned exercises to improve his flexibility for checking blind spots when turning.

Thirty states and the District of Columbia have special requirements for older drivers. (Associated Press)
