The Digital Driver Licence is the electronic version of the NSW Driver Licence available through the Service NSW app.
The Digital Driver Licence trial
The Digital Driver Licence trial is ongoing in selected suburbs in Sydney’s Eastern Suburbs, Albury, and the greater Dubbo area ahead of the statewide roll-out late 2019.
During the trial, businesses which verify identities or proof of age (licence checkers) as well as driver licence holders in the selected trial areas are invited to test the functionality of the digital licence.
Participants in the trial will have the opportunity to make an important contribution to the development of the Digital Driver Licence by providing feedback on the effectiveness of the Digital Driver Licence.
Find out if you're eligible to take part in the Digital Driver Licence trial.
If your business is in the trial area, learn about accepting the Digital Driver Licence.
After a successful trial, we’re preparing for the statewide roll-out late 2019. Once we launch statewide, the Digital Driver Licence will become legal for use across NSW, but there are conditions for using the Digital Driver Licence that holders need to know about.
