South Australia – Digital Security Licence

The South Australian Government has introduced digital passes and licences. This means that South Australians can carry selected government issued passes and licences on an Apple or Android smart phone or tablet device.

Builders, plumbers, gas fitters, electricians, and security and investigation agents can now choose to carry their licences/registrations digitally. (Note: crowd controllers who opt to carry a digital licence must still wear identification cards while working).

Hard copy licences will continue to be issued. While businesses and customers transition to validating digital licences it is recommended that hard copy licences still be carried.

Digital licences are provided through the mySA GOV account and mySA GOV app. Digital licences displayed in the mySA GOV app are an electronic form of the existing physical licence/registration and are valid credentials.
