Who Can Apply Online?

You can apply online if you are:

  • aged below 70 (according to the start date of the renewed driving licence)

When Should I Apply?

  • Hong Kong full driving licence can be renewed if it is due to expire within the next 4 months or has expired within the past 3 years.
  • Licences that expired more than 3 years ago cannot be renewed.  If you wish to obtain a new full driving licence, you will have to obtain a learner’s driving licence and take a road test again.  You will, however, be exempted from the written test.

What Do I Need for Online Application?

  • A valid personal digital certificate issued by recognised Certification Authorities, e.g. Hongkong Post (see the images below) or Renewal Password issued by the Transport Department for authentication.
