Notes for Attention

(1)

Vehicle registration document must contain signature of the registered vehicle owner, and the signature on the application form should match with that in the vehicle registration document (or the signature of an authorized representative together with a company chop if the vehicle is owned by a company, and the company chop on the application form should be identical with that on the vehicle registration document), otherwise this department will not process the related licensing application;

(2)

If a change occurs in the name, address or identity document of a driving licence holder/registered owner previously provided by the driving licence holder/registered owner to the Commissioner for Transport, the driving licence holder/registered owner shall, within 72 hours of the change, notify the Commissioner for Transport in writing or by submitting the completed Transport Department Form (TD559) with the proof of change. Any person who without reasonable excuse contravenes such requirement commits an offence and is liable to a fine of $2,000. For cases of change of name or change of identity document, the driving licence holder/registered owner shall also deliver to the Commissioner for Transport the existing original driving licence (if applicable), original driving instructor's licence (if applicable), original vehicle registration document (if applicable), vehicle licence (if applicable) and Certification of Allocation of Personalized Registration Mark (if applicable) for amendment;

(3)

Details of acceptable address proof can be referred to the following link. Transport Department may suspend the processing of licensing applications until the production of address proof;

(4)

For any change of address notified under any Transport Deparment application form, all vehicle/driving licence records of the applicant under the same identity document held by this Department will also be changed;

(5)
