In view of the increasing demand for licensing services by the growing number of vehicle and driving licence holders, measures have been introduced to enable the public to apply for licensing services through other channels besides visiting the licensing offices in person. At present, applications for renewal of vehicles and driving licences and some selected licensing services can be made by post or on-line through personal computers under the Electronic Services Delivery scheme.
