It's at least a couple of months before the testosterone is out of the body *after* neutering. So he still has the drive but may be over-compensating. He should settle down. Labs truly don't mature until they are almost 3 -- and there is always that stage where they're not sure where they fit into the world and have to experiment. But he should defer to you and if *you* are uncomfortable distract him.
It's a bit harder, in my own personal opinion, when a dog is so "mature" before they are neutered -- I know that's always a hotly contested topic but I think it's Harder for them to be 'changed' when they are older than it is when they are younger and still adapting to changes in the world and their bodies.
I think you'll find as the testosterone works it's way out of his body and as he has a chance to re-evaluate how he fits in with others it will settle down. He shouldn't become more aggressive and I wouldn't allow it. He may need to be re-directed but you'll need to be super aware of how other dogs treat HIM.
