A digital driver licence is available on the Service NSW app on your phone. To get your digital driver licence: • Download the latest version of the Service NSW app to your smartphone. • Log into the app with your MyServiceNSW Account details and follow the prompts. A digital licence is legal for use across NSW and is accepted by most pubs and clubs, and NSW Police. It may take some time before all organisations are ready to accept the digital driver licence. In the meantime, you should also carry your plastic card to avoid inconvenience.
