License Expired in 2014

Postby NCD22 » Tue, 13 Oct 2015 12:12 pm

All, my Sing driver's license expired in 2014 and I am in the process of moving back. Does anyone know if I need to retake all the tests or if I can simply go in and get a new license? Thanks!

I don't recall an expiry date on the license, unless you were on EP, where the license expires with your pass (or so .. )

I doubt' you need to take the test again

Drop by Traffic Police, and get it settled, over the counter I am sure.

PS, TP says :

Foreign Driving licence that expires with the expiry of a foreign visa

If you are a Singaporean or PR who holds a foreign driving licence that expires with the expiry of a foreign visa, you are required to obtain a written extract from the licence issuing authority of the country that your licence was issued. The extract should show the passing date, date of issue of your licence, the class of licence attained and your driving record.

You have to register for the Basic Theory Test within 3 months from the date you return to Singapore so that your conversion may be granted subsequently.

I'm on my second license, they expire after 5 years so not directly linked to EP duration. I renewed a month late, you don't get advised of expiry, with no issues. Hopefully it's just a matter of renewing.
