    Shorter process to get HK license?

    I have been driving for over 20 years. Driven in India, SE Asia, Europe and Middle East. My Indian license expired 3 years ago and I did not realise it. I will not be eligible for the discounted process to get the drivers license since mine expired 3 years ago. Does that mean I have to go through the whole process now? Including learners license etc. Or is there a shorter way to get one? Appreciate any insights you might have!

    TIA

    3 years is the cut off. If the licence expired LESS than 3 years ago, you can use it for a direct issue HK Licence. If it's more than 3 years, you should find out about renewing your Indian Licence, as it will be easier and cheaper than starting from scratch in HKG.
