If a student fails to lodge their paperwork within 60 days this will result in the operator being deemed an unlicenced operator and full training and/or assessing fees will apply after the 60-day period.

Currently a HRW Licence is valid 5 years from the date of issue, however If your address changes within this period we suggest licence holders update their details with the relevant authorities, failure to do so may result in the licence renewal not being received and renewal period lapsing, resulting in training and assessment needing to be completed again, full course payments would apply.
