Digital Driver Licences and Verification of Identity

In October 2019, the NSW Government introduced Digital Driver Licences (DDLs). At this stage, DDLs cannot be used as evidence for verifying a person’s identity for eConveyancing. This means that, if you are conducting verification of identity and you wish to rely on a person’s driver licence, to comply with the Verification of Identity Standard set out in Schedule 8 to the Participation Rules, you must sight the person’s original plastic driver licence and retain a copy of the original plastic driver licence.

For more information on verification of identity, please visit our Frequently Asked Questions page.

For more information on DDLs, please visit the Service NSW website.
