License renewals and transfers for cars, motorcycles, mopeds, caravans, trailers, buses, trucks, road trains, tractors, mobile cranes, forklifts, earthmovers, mobile farm implements and other vehicles can be processed. Permits for unlicensed vehicles, boat registration transfers and renewals are also able to be processed. However, the Shire is unable to answer any queries in relation to boat registrations.

Drivers licence testing is also available which include, Computer Theory Test (CTT), Hazard Perception Test (HPT), and the Practical Driving Assessment (PDA). Bookings are essential for all Practical Driver’s Licence Assessments and we advise that there is, at times, an extensive waiting list, so booking in advance is highly recommended.
