    Renewing driverís license

    I'm practicing various topics

    Topic : Renewing driver’s license

    Q: Your driver’s license is expiring soon. Call a police station to inquire about how to renew your driver’s license.

    A : Hello, this is Charlie Yun.
    I want to know about how to renew my driver's license
    It is expiring within one month.
    What kind of items do I have to prepare for the renewal?
    By when do I have to apply for the renewal?
    What is the renewal fee?
    When is the closing time of your office?
    ==========================
    If you have found any mistakes in my writing, please correct them.

    In many countries, renewing a driver license is not handled by the police.

    What kind of items do I have to prepare documents will I need for the renewal?
    By when do I have to apply for the renewal? [I don't understand what you mean by that.]
    What is the renewal fee?
    When is the closing And what time do you close please? of your office?
    Note that "would like" (or "'d like" in informal conversation) is more polite than "want".
    Note also that you should use "please" in some of the questions in such a conversation.

    Re: Renewing driverís license

    I wouldn't use "I'd like to find out about how to ...". I'd use "I'd like to find out how to ...".

    Note that your title and your opening line should be "Renewing a/your/one's driving licence".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    1.What
    kind of items do I have to prepare documents will I need for the renewal?

    => You need not only documents but also photos and other things, so "items" seems to be proper.

    2.By when do I have to apply for the renewal?
    [I don't understand what you mean by that.]

    This should be "When is the deadline of applying for the renewal?"

    Try:
    What do I need to bring with me to renew my license?

    Isn't the expiry date printed on the license?

    Application date precedes expiry date consideting production periiod of the new driving license.
    I think this works.

    When is the deadline of application?
