If your business checks licences, learn about accepting the digital driver licence.

For all driver licence holders, the NSW Digital Driver Licence has the same legal status as the plastic driver licence in NSW and is accepted more broadly interstate. It’s optional, doesn’t replace the plastic card and is available at no additional cost. There are conditions for using the digital driver licence that holders need to know about. 

The NSW Digital Driver Licence is accepted by most pubs and clubs, and NSW Police.

It’s illegal to access your Digital Driver Licence when driving, including when stationary, unless you’re asked to do so by a police officer. Penalties apply. Visit the Centre for Road Safety for more information.

Get the NSW Digital Driver Licence

To get your digital driver licence you’ll need to:

  • Download the latest version of the Service NSW app to your smartphone. 
  • Log into the app with your MyServiceNSW Account details and follow the prompts.

You will need a MyServiceNSW Account that’s linked to Roads to access your digital driver licence. The Service NSW app will walk you through the registration and linking process.

Your security and privacy

To ensure the security and privacy of licence holders, we've built strong partnerships with cyber security and identity theft experts. This has resulted in comprehensive security measures to protect your information and identity at all times, similar to those used for internet banking.
