Nineteen Icelanders 95 or older have valid driver’s licenses, 17 of whom are men and two women, according to the administrator of the Facebook page Langlífi (‘Longevity’).
After 80 years of age, driver’s licenses are only valid for one year at a time.
Morgunblaðið recently interviewed Guðjón Daníelsson from the village of Fáskrúðsfjörður in the East Fjords. At 101, Guðjón is the second-oldest driver in Iceland.
Iceland has one of the highest life expectancies in the world.
