A NSW Photo Card can be used as photo identification if you don't have a NSW Driver Licence. It has the same application process and security features as the driver licence, and should be accepted as identification everywhere a driver licence is recognised.
You can hold both a driver licence and a Photo Card if you wish, and use the Photo Card to prove your identity in situations not related to driving.
Visit a service centre and apply in person for your Photo Card, and if you apply for or renew your driving licence at the same time, you'll pay a reduced fee.
Note: There are also concessions for pensioners and carers.Find a service centre
