How To Renew Your Driving Permit/Drivers License In Uganda

Renewing a driver’s Licence in Uganda with URA is a requirement just like traveling passports have to be renewed when they expire and involves downloading the manual DP renew forms or getting them from the nearest URA Office. When your driving permit does expire in Uganda, you are given a period of between 1-5 years within which you should either renew it or have it suspended for life and since one can’t drive without a drivers license as per the traffic laws, then it is an automatic option for making sure that ones permit is up to date.

The Uganda road and safety act state it well that at no time should a person drive a vehicle without a valid driving license and if caught, one is liable to a punishment of jail and or paying a penalty of any sum of the money as may be directed from time to time and or face both of the charges.

There are situations in life whereby people find themselves caught up there by being prompted to do certain things including driving even when one knows it well that his or her restrictions are limited for example in cases when the permit, which is an official document which gives anyone permission to use the roads while driving has expired but because the situation forces the one involved to do so, one ends up going on the road, something which might cause some additional problems for example when an accident does occur and those involved are required to produce valid driving license.

In order to avoid any possible charges including the damages which might be involved during those times which may come unexpectedly, this Hub will help you to learn and know all the steps which are involved when it comes to renewing your drivers license in Uganda without the need to involve any third parties or agents just like it is known that many people take such opportunities to even corn others of large sums of money yet the whole process is very easy and quick to do. Check out Driving Permit sample here.

1. Visit the Uganda Revenue Authority website and scroll down and click on payment registration. On the form which comes up, choose NTR and continue.

2. Under tax head, scroll down and choose renewal drivers licence 1 year, 3 years or 5 years depending on what you need and how much money you have. Continue by filling in all the options marked with a redstart and make sure that you fill in the correct details.

3. Under the bank details, fill in your desired preferences, for example, cash or cheque on payment mode, and fill in all the rest. Enter text image as shown on the form below and click on accept and register. On the next page which comes, click on print below and have your forms printed out.

Once you have your printed forms, you should head to the bank you selected while filling the online forms and enact your payment after which you will be given a receipt to take to Uganda security printing company (USPC) together with the medical form, copy of your national ID or NIN number and your expired permit attached.

  15. Hello Adams, am stephen my permit expired way back in 2014 but wasn’t around but am back, can i renew it & how much

    1. Hello Stephen, not being in the country doesnt stop your permit from being cancelled. The law is for 5 years and that is it. If from the date of issue is 5 years, then you lost your permit as the cancellation time is 5 years from the date of issue. If Jan 2011, it was cancelled Jan 2016. Better call me on 0752009001 and we talk about how you can be helped and be back on the road with a URA permit.

  16. Hullo Adams, i would like to know if i got my permit in 2011 jan & expired 2014 but have not been within the country but now back. Can i renew it & how much…?

  17. Hello Adams,
    My permit is expired and i want to renew it. i have downloaded the medical and Form xii.
    After filling them, what should be my next step.
    Do i go direct to the bank and make payments then to Face technologies. Or i still have to go to URA Offices.

    If i go to the bank, how much money am i supposed to pay to URA. and How much do i pay to Face technologies.

  18. I renewed my driving permit recently. I was able to keep my payment receipt from URA but when I needed to retain one from FACE Technologies, I was informed I could not, which was very odd. That means that I have no evidence that I paid Face technology though I received my new driving permit. I needed the receipt to process a refund at my work place, but this is going to be difficult, if not impossible. How can I get my receipt? I suggest FACE Technology provides each one for every payments made

    1. When you look at the temporary driving permit issued by face technologies, you will see the price you paid. That acts as your receipt and which you can present to your boss for acknowledgement..

      1. Dear Adams, that is actually what I thought until I was at Window 16.The attendant took away the temporary permit, with the receipt lower part. I asked the staff if I could have just the lower receipt part but he blantantly told me ‘No’, adding that I should have made a photocopy before submitting it,an option which was not anywhere in public domain

        1. If you didn’t make a photocopy, that is unfortunate since there is no any other way. However, all people know that you pay in order to get a permit issued as per Uganda law. Your employer or anyone else will prove that once you show them the renewed permit.

  19. Am currently out of uganda , and my driving permit is getting expired soon.

    I can’t come home to renew my permit because my contract is still a long way to go.

    Plz let me know if there’s any other options to renew my permit.

  20. Hey Man,
    is there a way to renew the permit while abroad? Our bros and sis in Kenya able to do it online. Thanks Man.

  21. Hi Adam, well done. I’ve failed to find the medical form you talked about. where exactly do I get it on the URA website??

  22. I got driving license but ma first name was misspelt, the name was meant to be Mukuye but they wrote Mukuve ,how can I be help out of this. thanks

  23. I’m heading to my bank to pay for a 3 years renewal. But I’m unable to down load the medical form. Is it really a must I have to have the medical form prior to renewal? Thank you.

    1. But on the website they say u can renew between 1-5 years of expiry. How come you are saying 2 years

  24. Hi Adams. i have tried to follow your instructions and went to the URA website.However the last part when you click submit the page disappears and there is no option of printing. How do i go about that

    1. That could be your internet problem, and or your browser. Keep retrying, you will be able to get the prn printed. Also dont forget to download the medical form

  25. Am living in uae my permit is expired and am expted to back u ganga next year is there any problem to renue

But if there is still some days remaining for two years to click, then you can do the renew. Call 0752009001 for some quick help.
