The South Australian Government has begun introducing 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.
Digital passes and licences will be introduced in stages. Proof of age passes, boat licences, and land agent and land sales representative registrations became available on 29 May 2017. Additional passes, licences and other functions will be added to the system from the second half of 2017.
Digital passes and licences are provided through the mySA GOV account (an update of the EzyReg account) and mySA GOV app. Digital passes and licences displayed in the mySA GOV app are a valid form of identification.
Current plastic and paper passes and licences will continue to be issued. While you can choose to carry your government issued passes or licences digitally on a smart phone or tablet, it is recommended that you keep carrying your plastic and paper passes or licences for an initial period of transition to ensure that businesses and consumers who use your services are able to verify your credentials.
How do you obtain a digital pass or licence?
To access your land agent and land sales representative registrations digitally, you will need to create a new mySA GOV account by visiting sa.gov.au/mysagov and then download the mySA GOV app and follow the prompts. If you have an existing EzyReg account you can log into the mySA GOV account using the same login details.
If you need help creating a mySA GOV account call Service SA on 1300 450 422 (Monday to Friday) during business hours or email — email@example.com
