Understanding vocational licence renewal
A renewed vocational licence is valid for 3 years. However, if you are 67 years old and above, the validity period of your vocational licence may be shorter. For vocational licences to drive a public service vehicle, you can only hold them up to the statutory age limit of 75 years old.
For Omnibus Driver Vocational Licence (ODVL) holders, your ODVL remains valid as long as you are employed with your Public Transport Operator.
Your vocational licence cannot be renewed if you are convicted in court, or if your driving licence has been disqualified or suspended.
The renewal process will take about 10 working days, if all the documents are in order. Please be informed that no new vocational licence card will be issued after renewal. You may continue to use the vocational licence card issued to you earlier unless it is defaced or misplaced. For information on vocational licence card replacement, refer to the Card Replacement, Cancellation and Return page.
