Licence Replacement & Renewal

If your licence is lost, stolen or expired, here’s what you need to do to renew or replace it. If you’re a senior citizen, here’s what you need to do so you can continue driving.

Renewing or replacing your lost, stolen or expired licence is easy

You can renew or replace your licence at one of our Driver Licensing branches.

What to bring in with you:

At the branch you will need to:

  • Fill out the application form
  • Complete an eyesight screening check or present your eyesight certificate
  • Have your photo taken and sign your licence
  • Pay for your new licence – find the current cost of a new licence

You’ll then be given your temporary licence and your photographic licence will be posted in the mail.

Renewing your licence – for senior citizens

Once you turn 75 there’s a few changes to the process for renewing your driver licence:

  • You’ll need to renew your licence at age 75, 80 and every two years from then.
  • Your renewal fees will be lower – as you’re renewing your licence more often.
  • You’ll need to present a medical certificate each time you apply to renew.
  • You may have to sit a 30-minute On-road Safety Test if recommended by your doctor.

You can renew your licence before it expires so long as it’s less than six months before the expiry date:

  • Go to any VTNZ Driver Licensing branch to renew your licence.
  • One of our driver testing branches will also take you for your On-road Safety Test if required.
