How to renew
Visit My Registration and complete the online renewal form and pay the fee.
After you lodge your renewal application
If you completed the form yourself online, did not require a new photo and paid the fee online, then you do not need to visit Service Tasmania.
You only need to visit a Service Tasmania shop (external link) to:
- pay the application fee (if you haven’t paid online)
- have a new photo taken (if you requested an updated photo, or your current photo has expired)
- agree to the terms and conditions of application (if someone else has completed the online renewal form on your behalf).
Once your renewal has been processed, you will receive email confirmation. A new registration card will then be posted to you.
