Driver Licences

To help smooth the transition back to compliance, the following documents are temporarily extended:

  • WoFs and CoFs, driver licences that expired on or after 1 January 2020.
  • Other vehicle certifications which expired on or after 1 January 2020, including alternative fuel inspection certificates, permits authorising use of vehicles with conditions, and heavy vehicle specialist certifications of towing connections and log bolster attachments.
  • Endorsements (including drivers of small and large passenger services and dangerous good endorsements held by some truck drivers) that expired on or after 1 March 2020.
  • The legislative changes also allow a temporary suspension of the requirement to have a current vehicle licence if the vehicle licence expired on or after 1 January 2020.

New expiry dates

Once we start adjusting back to business as normal, the Transport Agency, working closely with industry groups, will set expiry dates for these documents, which could extend up until 10 October 2020. We will let you know as we set these dates and will ensure you have plenty of time to get your documents compliant. Please check that we have your correct contact details – you can do this on our website.
