The renewal period begins May 1. Apply for your renewal by June 1. This ensures we can process your licence before it expires on June 30.

It's illegal to do business or work in the new licence year before we've renewed your licence.

If an application does not meet the automatic renewal requirements we'll review it within 15 business days. We'll confirm you've met all the legal requirements before we issue your licence.
