Qualified Driving Licence

     

     

IMPORTANT NOTICE

E-Application of Qualified Driving Licence (only for Singapore Citizens, Singapore Permanent Residents and foreigners who had passed the practical test at any of the 3 Traffic Police Test Centres)


Singapore Citizens and Permanent Residents who had passed their practical test are required to apply and make payment for their Qualified Driving Licence (QDL) online using their own Singpass account via this e-Service). Payment of S$50 for application of QDL must be made online using only eNETS or credit card. Before using this e-Service, members of public must first ensure that they had taken their digital photograph at the driving centre where they had passed their practical test as this digital photograph will be used to print on their photo card driving licence. You are advised to take the digital photograph at the driving centre before you book your practical test so that your digital photograph will be made available in the system and you can immediately apply for QDL online once you pass the practical test. Once you have applied and make successful payment for your QDL online, your photo card driving licence will be mailed to you via registered post within 7 working days. Please note that if you do not apply and make successful payment for your QDL online, you will not be allowed to drive or ride. Do note that driving or riding without a valid driving licence is a serious offence and offenders will be prosecuted in Court.


If you already possess an existing valid Singapore driving licence and had just passed another class of driving licence, you do not need to take a digital photograph at the driving centre and apply for your QDL. After you had passed the practical test, the driving tester at the Traffic Police Test Centre will assist to paste an endorsement sticker (with the new class of QDL that you had passed) at the back of your existing valid Singapore photo card driving licence. There is no fee charged for the endorsement of your new class of driving licence. Please note that if you do not endorse your QDL, you will not be allowed to drive or ride. Do note that driving or riding without a valid driving licence is a serious offence and offenders will be prosecuted in Court.


Foreigners holding valid work passes issued by the Ministry of Manpower (MOM) or Student/Long-Term Visit passes issued by the Immigration & Checkpoints Authority (ICA) who had passed their practical test at any of the 3 Traffic Police Test Centres are also required to apply for their QDL online using their own Singpass account.

 

Foreigners who had passed the practical test but are not eligible to apply for Singpass (e.g. work permit holders and student pass holders), you are required to apply for QDL online via this e-Service using your FIN number, Date of Birth and card serial number for log in.

 

Please note that if you do not apply and make successful payment for your QDL online, you will not be allowed to drive or ride. Do note that driving or riding without a valid driving licence is a serious offence and offenders will be prosecuted in Court.
