Changes to learner and restricted licences from 1 December 2021

From 1 December 2021, some rules for car and motorcycle learner and restricted licences have changed:

  • You don’t have to sit a theory test to renew your learner and restricted licence.
  • You can renew your learner or restricted licence at any time; you don’t have to wait until 90 days before your licence is due to expire.
  • When you get or renew a learner or restricted driver licence it'll be issued for 10 years instead of five years.
