Should I consider online License Renewal?

Absolutely! Online License Renewal is the way to go!  Tried & Tested. 

Your Motor Vehicle License Renewal is due annually.  If you fail to do so before its expiry date, you are liable to pay late licensing penalties.  You do however get a 21-day grace period which is calculated from the date of expiry on your current license disc.

Whether you’re renewing your vehicle license online, or at a Post Office,  avoid paying those penalty fees and get it done.
