Registrations now open for digital driver licence trial
19 October 2017
Registrations are now open for Dubbo motorists who want to be part of the state’s first digital driver licence trial, which goes live in November.
Minister for Finance, Services and Property Victor Dominello joined Minister for Roads, Maritime and Freight Melinda Pavey and Member for Dubbo Troy Grant in announcing today’s milestone.
“Residents in postcode 2830 who register for the trial will be able to use their digital licence, accessible on a mobile phone, for proof of identity and proof of age to gain entry into pubs and clubs as well for roadside Police checks,” Mr Dominello said.
Mrs Pavey said the findings of the trial will help inform the state-wide rollout of the digital licence.
“This is the biggest change to the way licences are presented since the NSW Driver Licence was first laminated back in 1989. It is also an opportunity to address challenges such as identity security and fraud,” Mrs Pavey said.
Mr Grant encouraged Dubbo residents to take part in the trial and provide feedback.
“We are committed to delivering a digital driver licence state-wide by 2019 and this trial provides Dubbo residents with a unique opportunity to help shape the final product,” Mr Grant said.
Participants will still be required to carry their physical licence during the trial. Registrations will be available at www.service.nsw.gov.au, in store at the Dubbo Service Centre or via the Service NSW Facebook page.
