What about the eye test?
You can do the eye test on the day of the payment at the DLTC or; go to a recognised eye specialist where a certificate will be issued that will be acceptable at the testing station.

I selected my preferred testing station but cannot get a booking for my preferred date and time.
If the date and time that you prefer is not available, it could be that it has been already allocated as the system is live or the testing station is fully booked for the date and time you prefer. You can either wait until booking timeslots become available or try a different testing station.

The date and time is not convenient for me at the testing station.
You can either try for a date and time at a different testing station that is more convenient or select a different date and time as all testing stations have specific days on which they test certain licence categories and it could be that the times are already allocated.

Penalties for an expired driving licence.
Currently, there are no penalties for renewing an expired driving licence, however, you are encouraged to renew your licence as soon as it nears its expiry date and obtain a temporary driving licence if you require it before you receive your driving licence card.
