From Tuesday 22 March 2022 we are delighted to announce that payments for online applications will now be completed online. You will no longer be required to phone in to make your payment as long as your online payment is successful.

The forms for driver renewals and vehicle first grant/renewals will look slightly different but once you have completed the forms you will be directed to make an online payment.

Any forms submitted prior to 22 March 2022 will still need to make payment by calling 01204 336584 (option 1).
