Vehicle licence renewals

If you have an existing vehicle licence you should receive a renewal letter at least two weeks before your licence expires.

The renewal letter has a unique reference number to use when you apply to renew your licence online. 

Please email environment.licensing@newport.gov.uk if you have not received your renewal pack.

Your application will be delayed if we do not receive a completed application before the time and date of the vehicle test or if the incorrect payment has been received. 

To make sure the vehicle is always licenced it is important that you submit the application in good time and have the vehicle tested before the vehicle licence expires. 

As the Information Station is closed every Wednesday, licences for vehicles that pass at the testing station on a Tuesday will be released on Thursday after 9am.
