What do I need for drivers licence renewal?

To renew your driver’s license, you may need to provide certain documents and information. The specific requirements may vary depending on your location and circumstances, but generally, you will need the following:

  1. Your current driver’s license card: You will need to provide your existing driver’s license card as proof of your identity and previous license.
  2. Identity document: You will need to provide a valid South African identity document or a valid passport if you are a foreign national.
  3. Proof of residence: You may need to provide proof of your residential address, such as a utility bill or bank statement, to verify your current address.
  4. Eye test certificate: You may need to provide a certificate from a registered optometrist or ophthalmologist to show that your eyesight meets the required standards for driving.
  5. Payment: You will need to pay the renewal fee, which varies depending on your location and the type of license you hold.

It’s always a good idea to check with your local licensing authority for the specific requirements and documents needed for your driver’s license renewal. Some licensing authorities may have additional requirements or restrictions depending on your circumstances, such as if you have outstanding fines or a medical condition that could affect your ability to drive.
