Proof of identity

Find out how to prove your identity to complete a transaction, such as applying for a driver’s licence.

We have different proof of identity requirements to other states and agencies. 
Please make sure you read the below information to understand what documents you need to provide. Please have original documents that are printed (not digital) and any supporting documents (e.g. marriage certificate).

You will need to prove your identity when completing a transaction or requesting a service from the Department of Transport.

This means you may need to provide a number of documents that demonstrate who you are and where you live.

The type and number of documents you need to provide will depend on the transaction or service.
