Before renewing your driving licence
Depending on your age and the type of licence you are renewing, you may be required to take an eyesight test and/or a health examination. If you are required to take a health examination you will be sent a health examination form to your registered address, 6 months before your licence expires.
- If you are 40 or over, you must take a driver's eyesight examination every ten years. You will be sent a reminder directing you to take the examination 4 months before your licence expires.
If you are 70 or over, you must take a health examination.
If you are a professional driver - taxi driver, bus driver, or heavy vehicle driver - aged 60 or over, you must take a health examination.
How to renew your licence
You will be sent a payment slip to your registered address one month before your driving licence expires. If you do not receive the payment slip, contact the Ministry of Transport by phone or go to a licensing office in person (you must bring your ID card).
If the Ministry of Transport doesn't have a photo of you in the system, you will see a note on the driving licence payment slip. If so, you must go to your local photo station, after paying the licence fee, to have your photo taken for no extra charge.
Pay the licence renewal fee online by credit card or see below for more ways to renew your licence.
After paying the renewal fee you will be sent your temporary driving licence to your registered address within two weeks.
You will be sent your permanent driving licence to your registered address within approximately 2 months.
To see service fees go to the driving licence renewal fee chart.
If your driving licence is going to expire soon, it is quicker to renew it at your local bank branch or post office.
You can't use your receipt or payment confirmation as a licence - if you are asked to show a driving licence and you show your receipt, this will not be accepted. Only temporary or permanent driving licences are valid.
