Proving your identity


Proof of your identity is essential when dealing with the RMS for many of our products and services. While our requirements may seem strict, they're necessary to protect your identity and privacy, and to ensure the accuracy and integrity of our records.

What you need to provide

To prove who you are to Roads and Maritime, you'll need to provide:

A NSW photo driver/rider licence or NSW Photo Card that is current, or has expired within the last two years (provided it's not recorded as lost, stolen or destroyed) OR

Two documents one from List 1

and one from List 2.

Important: In all cases, your identity documents must be originals. Copies and certified copies are not acceptable.

If you're providing documents from List 1 and List 2, your name should be the same on both documents. If they're different, see Changing your personal details. Your gender (if shown) should also be the same on both documents.

 

Proof of your NSW residential address
One of your documents should show your current NSW residential address.

If it doesn't, you'll need to provide one of the following documents that does show your current address:

A current certificate of registration, issued by the RMS
A licence or registration renewal notice for the coming period, issued by the RMS
A contract of sale, lease agreement or rental receipt for your place of residence, up to two years old.
If you can't provide proof of your residential address, you'll need to provide a Reference statement [this page].

Your signature

One of your proof of identity documents should show your signature.

If it doesn't, you'll need to provide a statement from one of the following people witnessing your signature:

Your employer
Bank manager
School principal
Accompanying parent or guardian.
Our application forms generally include a section for the witness to complete, if necessary. You can also download a Witness Letter (PDF, 249Kb).

Reference statement

If you can't provide proof of your residential address, or you're applying for a replacement licence or NSW Photo Card and can't provide acceptable proof of identity documents, you'll need to provide a reference statement.

This needs to be from someone who has known you for at least 12 months, and who holds a current NSW unrestricted licence. We may contact your referee to confirm their statement.

Our application forms generally include a section for the referee to complete, if necessary.
