Driver licence renewals
You now need to complete a tax check on GOV.UK when you apply or renew your licence.
Safeguarding Training Course
All existing licence holders must attend safeguarding refresher training every 3 years. Failure to undertake the training within the specified timescales will lead to the suspension of your licence until such time as the training has been completed and a certificate has been provided to the Licensing Team.
Details of course and provider can be found on our step by step guide for new applicants under the Book a Safeguarding Training Course heading.
You can renew your licence at a reduced cost if you return the application form at least 7 days before your licence expires.
If your licence has expired, you’ll need to apply for a new licence at the full cost.
It is your responsibility to check the expiry date of your licence. We will not send you a reminder or any other documents.
Please refer to our step by step guide for new applicants to ensure you still meet the relevant criteria to hold a valid licence, e.g. Medical assessment.
- £194 for a licence renewal (£263 for a new licence)
