Digital diver’s licence rolls in

NSW drivers can now use a Digital Driver’s Licence (DDL) on their smartphone for proof of identity, proof of age and at roadside police checks.

Premier Gladys Berejiklian and Minister for Customer Service, Victor Dominello, announced the statewide rollout last week at North Cammeray, following a successful trial.
“We’ve always put the customer at the heart of everything we do. Opal card and Service NSW have revolutionised the customer experience. The Digital Driver’s Licence is the latest way we are making life easier for the people of this state,” Ms Berejiklian said.
“More than 550,000 people have already downloaded the digital licence. In the suburb of Blacktown alone, 4,733 people have chosen to go digital.”
The Digital Driver’s Licence has inbuilt security controls to protect customer’s personal information.
“The DDL is hosted securely on the new Service NSW app, locks with a PIN and can be accessed offline,” Mr Dominello said.
Drivers who opt-in are encouraged to carry their plastic licence in the initial stages.
