Renew Your Driving Licence

A renewal notice will be sent to your last recorded address approximately four to five weeks before your licence expires. Failure by VicRoads to send a renewal notice or you not receiving the notice does not affect your obligation to renew the licence.

You can renew your licence in several ways depending on whether VicRoads holds a recent digitalised image of you in its database. The renewal notice will indicate whether a new image needs to be made.

Note: There are no fee concessions available for driver licence fees.

In Person
If the renewal notice indicates that you need a new image made and all the details on the renewal notice are correct, you need to take the notice to a Licence Photo Point* or a VicRoads Customer Service Centre and:

provide your existing licence as evidence of identity. If your licence is unavailable, you must provide other documentation to prove your identity (see below)
pay the licence fee
have a new digitalised image made

* If you renew at a Licence Photo Point, a new image will be made, even if VicRoads holds a recent digitalised image on its database.

You can pay by cash, cheque, EFTPOS or credit card (Visa or Mastercard). However, if you are renewing your licence at an agency, please check with them ahead of time to see what payment methods they accept.

If you have a new digitalised image made at a VicRoads Customer Service Center or at a photo point, you will receive your new licence in about a week.

By Bpay, telephone or mail
If the VicRoads held digitalised image of you is a recent image (the renewal notice will indicate this) and if all the details on your renewal notice are correct, you can renew your licence by Bpay, telephone or mail and you will receive your new licence within five to seven working days.

By Bpay Call your banking provider and follow the prompts.

By Telephone Call VicRoads on 1300 554 853 and follow the prompts. This service is available 24 hours a day 7 days a week.

Renewing your licence while overseas
If you are overseas and need to renew your licence, you can do this by Bpay, telephone or by mail if VicRoads holds a recent digitalised image of you. This will be indicated on your renewal licence. If you do not know whether VicRoads has a recent photo of you on its database, you can find this and more information by calling +613 9854 7763.
Your licence will be mailed to the current address on your licence. Please allow two to four weeks for delivery if you have requested your new licence to be mailed overseas.

If you do not renew your licence on time, your licence will expire. Depending on your licence status, different requirements will apply for renewing an expired licence.

Evidence of identity
If you can not provide your existing licence as evidence of identity you will need to provide other original evidence of identity documents.

An Australian photo driver licence that has not expired by more than two years, or
A Victorian photo marine licence that has not expired by more than two years, or
A Victorian firearm photo licence that has not expired by more than two years.

If you cannot provide one of these documents you will need to attend a VicRoads office.

If you are attending a VicRoads Customer Service Centre you will need to provide multiple evidence of identity documents of:

one primary evidence document (e.g. Australian birth certificate or passport)
one secondary evidence document (e.g. Medicare card, credit/debit account card, student identity card, bank statement)
evidence of residence (if not indicated in the primary or secondary documents)

One of these documents must have your signature on it.

expired by more than six months
