NSW to get Digital Licences in 2016

NSW Minister of Finance and Services, Dominic Perrottet, is expected to announce the initiative today during his keynote speech at the GovInnovate forum in Canberra.

Unfortunately it maybe some time till our drivers licences are digital, the current indication is late 2018.The first licences to go digital will be recreational fishing licences, responsible service of alcohol (RSA) licences, and responsible conduct of gambling (RCG) licences. These will be available mid 2016.

Physical licences will still be available to people who want them.

Mr Perrottet will announce the digital licences will have “security safeguards” built into them so it will be easier for authorities to verify their validity. It is unclear what these safeguards will be.

Do you have concerns for digitial licences or do you wish they would come sooner? Let us know what you think
