Driver’s Licence Replacements
You may wish to acquire a duplicate driver’s licence if your current licence has been lost, stolen or destroyed. Come into the Southland Registrations office and provide 2 pieces of valid identification. Our friendly staff will be able to assist you.
In recent years, duplicate drivers licences could be printed and issued on site in our office. Due to new government regulations, this is no longer the case. A new picture can not be taken (your previous photograph will be used), and your duplicate driver’s licence will be mailed to your address within 2-3 weeks.
In lieu of your driver’s licence, a temporary driver’s licence will be issued stating that your driver’s licence is being printed. Unfortunately this temporary licence is not valid as identification, but can be used as proof of driving privileges until your licence arrives.
