Good Evening

In NSW it is required to have a medical every year and a driving test every second year.

Here is the information from the RMS followed by the link

Unrestricted licence – practical driving assessment

If you want to keep your unrestricted licence, you’ll need to pass a practical driving assessment every second year (at 85 years old, 87, 89, and so on).

You can do a driving test with a Roads and Maritime testing officer, or you can choose to be assessed by an Older Driver Assessor. Older Driver Assessors are driving instructors accredited by Roads and Maritime, and charge a fee to conduct an assessment in your local area.

http://www.rms.nsw.gov.au/roads/licence/older-drivers/index.html

I hope this makes sense and is of assistance. If you have found my answer to be helpful, please rate me five stars so I can get paid for my services to you. I am happy for you to ask further questions on anything you wish more detail on.

Regards

Leon
