The Working with Children Check card is valid for five years unless surrendered or revoked. We’ll send you a reminder email, text or letter in the mail 28 days before your card expires.
When should I renew my card?
You can renew your card online from six months before its expiry date until three months after it has expired.
It’s illegal to do child-related work after your card expires unless you’ve lodged your renewal, or you now qualify for an exemption (see our 'When you don't need a Check' page). If you still intend to do child-related work after your card has expired, you’ll need to start a new application.
How do I renew my card?
You can now do this through Service Victoria. It's a new Victorian Government website bringing different services together in one place.
Alternatively, you can register for access to MyCheck, then login to renew your card.
