Updating your driving licence
It’s the standard UK driving licence – a pink card with the photo of the driver on the front.
These were first issued in 1998 – and they’re the only type of driving licence the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency currently issues.
If we do hold a current photo of you and if all the details on your renewal notice are correct, you can renew your licence by BPAY, phone, mail or in person.
Your renewal notice will indicate whether a BPAY payment can be made.
A reminder notice may also be sent if the licence is not renewed within two months after the expiry date.
You can renew your licence using a number of payment options.
You can still upgrade your paper licence at any time by applying to exchange it for a photocard.Once you reach the age of 70, your licence expires – but this doesn’t automatically mean you have to stop driving.You just need to renew your driving licence if you want to continue and then every 3 years afterwards.Alternatively, you can have your eyes tested by an optometrist and submit the form at the driving licence testing centre (DLTC).If your sight has worsened from the date on which your licence was issued, new conditions will be attached to your licence.
