Introduction

If you've received your security licence renewal form, you can renew and pay online. There are 2 types of renewals:

  • on-time renewal – on or before the licence expiry date
  • late renewal – within 90 days of the licence expiry date (includes a late fee).

If it's more than 90 days after the expiry date on your licence, you'll need to submit a new application, and you cannot trade until your new licence is issued.

Eligibility

  • You can renew your security licence if you've received a renewal form and the expiry date is not over 90 days.

To make sure that you have all the information and documentation you need to complete this transaction, please visit Security Licence at the NSW Police Force website.
