Exercise for Senior Drivers


Senior drivers who exercise will improve the types of driving-related movements that many people find challenging, and thus enjoy a  longer, safer and more positive driving experience overall.

Senior driver exercises focus on four areas – flexibility, range of motion, strength and coordination.


  • Strength Exercises: Strength is important for many driving tasks such as pressing down on a brake pedal. Exercises like biceps curls and squats can help enhance a driver’s strength.

  • Range of Motion Exercises: Range of motion is central to actions like putting on your seatbelt easily. Performing exercises like back stretches and heel drops can improve your range of motion.

  • Flexibility Exercises: Flexibility is necessary for movements like getting in and out of your car easily. To enhance your flexibility, consider exercises like chest and shoulder expansions and shoulder stretches.

  • Coordination Exercises: Coordination can help with the integration of movement in your upper and lower body, such as simultaneously braking and turning. Soccer kicks and lateral steps are good exercises for boosting your coordination.
