Digital licences on the way for tradies

Trade licences will be going digital under the NSW government’s digital licensing “revolution”.

According to Minister for Better Regulation and Innovation Kevin Anderson, the NSW government is set to digitise the licence card for more than 30 Home Building and SafeWork licence categories.

He said tradies are currently required to carry “anywhere up to 15 plastic licence cards with them on the job”.

“It’s an outdated system that is costing tradies time and money,” Mr Anderson said.

“Under these changes, tradies will finally be able to say goodbye to the plastic licences clogging up their wallets and have quick and easy access to all the work licences they need on their smartphones.”

It follows the successful rollout of mobile phone driver’s licence capabilities, which has been downloaded by more than 2.5 million motorists since October 2019.

The first card to go digital will be the White Card, which allows for the holder to undertake construction work across the state.

Home building industry contractors, supervisors and tradesmen, and high-risk work licences, are set to follow.

Minister for Customer Service Victor Dominello said “there are close to 1.5 million site managers, surveyors and tradies who hold a White Card in NSW and whose lives will be made easier by this reform”.

“We know people love the convenience of a digital licence and this is another example of NSW leading the nation on digital transformation,” Mr Dominello commented.
