Secure your identity

As the holder of a learnerís permit, your consent is required to book, swap, or cancel a PDA booking.  

It is an offence for a person to assume another personís identity.

Why DoT protects your identity

Learnerís permits and driverís licence cards are used as primary forms of identification.

DoT works closely with the WA Police Force and other agencies under our proof of identity (POI) arrangements to ensure the integrity of these forms of identification and to protect your identity.

 

How we protect your identity

DoT protects your identity by:

  • Using security features on licences and photo cards; 
  • Recording licences and other cards as reported lost, stolen or destroyed; 
  • Referring suspicious customer identification cases to a specialised unit or WA Police Force; and 
  • Validating key POI documents with the issuing authority.

More information about protecting your identity can be found on the Home Affairs website.
