NSW trade licenses to go digital

The NSW Government is adding trade licenses to the digital wallet within the Service NSW app as part of the next stage of the state-wide digital transformation.

NSW Minister for Better Regulation and Innovation, Kevin Anderson, said that the State Government will digitise the licence card for more than 30 Home Building and SafeWork licence categories.


“Currently tradies are required to carry anywhere up to 15 plastic licence cards with them on the job,” Mr Anderson said.

“It’s an outdated system that is costing tradies time and money.

“Under these changes tradies will finally be able to say goodbye to the plastic licences clogging up their wallets and have quick and easy access to all the work licences they need on their smartphones.”

The White Card – which permits the holder to undertake construction work in NSW – is the first category to go digital, followed by a range of other categories including Home Building industry contractors, supervisors and tradesmen, and high-risk work licences.

NSW Minister for Customer Service, Victor Dominello, said the reforms build on the success of the digital driver licence, which has been downloaded by more than 2.54 million motorists since its launch in October 2019.

“There are close to 1.5 million site managers, surveyors and tradies who hold a White Card in NSW and whose lives will be made easier by this reform,” Mr Dominello said.

“We know people love the convenience of a digital licence and this is another example of NSW leading the nation on digital transformation.”

Customers will need a MyServiceNSW account and to download the Service NSW app in order to display their digital White Card.
