Driver Licence Renewal Now Available Online

Government of Nova Scotia

Nova Scotians can now access a new online service to make it easier and faster to renew regular driver, motorcycle and farm tractor licences.

Drivers can use the new service if they:

  • have a licence that expires on or before Dec. 31
  • do not have outstanding fines or suspensions
  • have not recently changed their address online or do not need to change their address
  • have a regular (Class 5), motorcycle (Class 6) and farm tractor (Class 8)

An electronic or printed renewal confirmation will be provided so people can continue to drive with their previous licence until their new card arrives in the mail.

“With the impact of COVID-19 on our daily lives, Nova Scotians have been provided different ways to access services while following new public health protocols to help keep themselves and others healthy and safe,” said Service Nova Scotia and Internal Services Minister Patricia Arab. “The new online driver licence renewal service will be faster, easier and more convenient for thousands of people with licences that will expire soon.”

Driver licences can still be renewed at Access Nova Scotia centres by calling to make an appointment or waiting in line.
