How to renew a  lapsed licence

A lapsed licence is one that has been expired for 24 months (two years) or more. You can renew a lapsed licence after returning to the Inspectorate of Vehicles (IOV) — a department at the Uganda Police — to be tested for the classes on the lapsed licence.

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.

Driving Licence Verification/Authentication:

To get a letter of authentication or have a Driving Licence verified:

  • Email requesting verification with an attachment of a scanned copy (front and back) of the Driving Licence.
  • Clearly state to what email the letter should be sent.
