Replace your licence or learner permit

How to replace your driver licence, marine licence or learner permit if it's lost, stolen or damaged.

We've made important changes to the way you can replace your licence or learner permit

We’re still open for business but realise you may not want to visit a Customer Service Centre to replace their licence or permit, especially when you need a new photo. Which is why we’ve upgraded our system to allow you to order a replacement licence or learner permit online, and pay by VISA or Mastercard*. Your existing photo will be used for your replacement licence or learner permit.

You must record your receipt number as proof of payment until you receive your replacement. If you need to update your details, please refer to further instructions below.

* A card payment fee applies

All Victorians are being asked to stay safe by maintaining good hygiene, keeping your distance from others and if you feel unwell stay home. For more information visit the Department of Health and Human Services website.

Order replacement licence

We’ll give you a receipt number that you must carry when driving, until you get your replacement card.
