NSW Digital Driver Licence

Written by Sean B.

The NSW Digital Driver Licence (DDL) is now in a live environment and some testing is still underway. Customers who experience delays are encouraged to download the DDL at a later time.

The NSW Digital Driver Licence is the digital version of the NSW Driver Licence available through the Service NSW app.

For all driver licence holders, the digital driver licence is now legal for use across NSW at no additional cost. It’s optional and doesn’t replace the plastic card. There are conditions for using the digital driver licence  that holders need to know about. 

The NSW Digital Driver Licence is accepted by most pubs and clubs, and NSW Police.

It’s illegal to access your Digital Driver Licence when driving, including when stationary, unless you’re asked to do so by a police officer. Penalties apply. Visit the Centre for Road Safety  for more information.
