State Driving Tests - Is it time for a big change?

I’m in PA and drivers take only one driving and non-driving test their whole lives.

What are the cons of revamping laws so that tests are both harder and more frequent?

Along with that why not make the cost of the test inversely proportional to number of years driving?

So when you first get your license the cost to test is high… because it should be difficult to get a license.

As you get older you get randomly called to be tested and because of that the test costs reduce…in fact the test cost is zero for drivers over 65 (but also more mandatory).

Each driver gets tested at least once every 10 years. But, the larger the number of years you drive the lower the cost of the test (but not the difficulty, regardless of driving record).
