You can now renew your NSW driver’s licence online
YOU don’t need to wait in line at NSW Services or the RTA to renew your driver’s licence because as of today you will be able to do it online.
Customers will be able to renew their licence online for up to five years using their existing photo, simply by logging on to the Service NSW web or mobile sites.
Their new licence will be issued by post within 10 business days, with customers required to print an interim licence for use in the meantime.
Previously all NSW driver’s licences had to be renewed by the person at a NSW Services or RTA centre.
Services Minister Dominic Perrottet announced the new digital service today.
“This is yet another digital initiative that’s going to save more time and make life that little bit more convenient for the people of NSW,” he said.
“Hundreds of thousands of people will also have the option of renewing their licences at the click of a button, when and where it suits them.”
Fees will remain the same whether customers renew online or at a Service NSW centre.
An eligible driver renewing their licence online may only need to visit a Service NSW centre as often as once every 10 years, to update their photo or sit an eye test.
To ensure security and safety on our roads, online renewal will not be available for some licences, for example if a medical assessment is required or if the licence is restricted.
