When the government launches digital licences in NSW at the end of 2018, everyone will have the option to carry virtual licences on their phones.
Currently, NSW issues more than 23 million licences each year, covering 769 different licence types. The first licences to go digital are for recreational fishing, responsible service of alcohol (RSA) and responsible conduct of gambling (RCG).
So far, NSW is the first state to work actively towards digital licences. Victoria has no immediate plans to introduce them. However, South Australia is reported to be investigating digital licences for tradespeople, before running a broader trial.
Finally, you can get more information at Service NSW.
Remember too, you can always find the cheapest greenslip on your mobile.
