Digitalisation Of Private Driving Instructor (PDI) Licence Renewal Process

With effect from 1 Feb 2024, the Private Driving Instructor (PDI) licence renewal application will be available online. This is part of the Police’s digitalisation efforts to enhance public service delivery. Prior to the roll-out, the PDIs have been engaged by the Traffic Police (TP) on the new application process.

PDI Licence Renewal Process

PDIs who wish to renew their licences can now do so online by submitting their applications at SMS reminders will be sent to PDIs to submit their renewal application during the renewal application period. Please refer to the table below for the renewal application period.
