Renewing your driver accreditation

Approximately 16 weeks before your accreditation expires you should receive a renewal form in the mail.

If you are on a conditional accreditation (1 year period) you may receive additional forms to complete.

To complete the renewal of your accreditation you will need to:

  1. Attend a medical appointment and have the medical assessment/vision acuteness certificate on the renewal form completed by a medical practitioner
  2. Pay the appropriate fee using one of the payment methods provided
  3. Sign and date the declaration on the renewal form
  4. Return the completed renewal form via mail to Taxi Services Commission, GPO Box 1716, Melbourne VIC 3001.

You must make payment, complete and return the renewal form to the TSC by the due date to avoid accreditation suspension/cancellation.

If you submit your renewal after your driver accreditation has expired, you will also need to provide a TSC Informed Consent form PDF, 82.5 KB form and pay the relevant fee to allow the TSC to conduct a criminal record check on your behalf.

If you allow your driver accreditation to expire by more than three months you cannot apply to renew your accreditation and must submit a new application for driver accreditation.

Driver accreditation renewals may take up to 10 business days to process. It is recommended that you submit your applications early to avoid disappointment.

What if I didn't receive my renewal?

If your accreditation expires in less than 3 months and you have not received your renewal paperwork in the post, please contact the TSC to advise and request a renewal form.

How will I know if I am renewed?

If you meet all of the criteria, you will receive your new accreditation certificate in the mail. Please allow up to 10 business days for processing.
