 The mandatory documents you will need for this process:


    1. Valid national ID for Ugandan applicants. We also accept a duplicate/copy of the ID, a photocopy of the ID, or a NIRA verification letter if you don’t have any of the previous documents
      *For non-Ugandans: valid passport, and a visa valid for at least one day. Acceptable visas are: student and diplomatic visas, residence and work permit, and dependant pass. Tourist visas are not acceptable for new licences.
      *Refugee card issued by the prime ministers office for refugees (original copy)
    2. Proof of payment (payment registration number, from either the URA or the Ministry of Works and Transport e-services portal); how to generate a payment registration slip
    3. Learner licence (original)
    4. Certificate of competence (issued by Police IOV)
    5. Certificate of completion (obtained from a licenced driving school after training)
    6. Fully filled-out driving licence application form
    7. Fully filled-out medical examination report: The medical examination report is a section of the learner driving licence and driver licence application form. An applicant for a full driver licence does not need to fill the section if they already had it filled/completed on the learner licence within the last six months. A medical examination report done for the learner licence in the last six months is still valid for a full driver licence application.

Note: UDLS does not accept cash at our branches. Payment Assessments are generated via the URA website or the MoWT e-service portal and payment is made through any bank, mobile money, or payway.
