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.
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:
* 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.
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.
You can send your renewal notice to VicRoads together with the renewal fee. You can pay by either credit card (Visa or Mastercard) or cheque.
