To lodge your renewal application online, you will need:

  • An email address or mobile telephone number currently recorded with the department so that, when prompted, we can SMS and/or email you your personal one-time security access code
  • Your recent national police history check from an approved provider
  • Fitness and propriety form
  • Access to a printer and scanner/camera
  • A black or blue ballpoint pen
  • A recent photo of yourself, for use on your identity card (where applicable)
  • Credit card details
