What happens next

A new licence will be sent to your recorded residential or postal address within three weeks.

When you apply for a replacement online, you can print out a temporary licence or download a digital licence immediately through the mySA GOV app. Digital passes and licences displayed in the mySA GOV app are an electronic form of your existing physical licence.

If you have not received the replacement licence within 21 days phone Service SA on 13 10 84. If you don't contact Service SA within 30 days you may need to pay a replacement licence fee.

Reasons you can't replace online

Online replacment may not be available in some circumstances.

  • If you tell us you have a medical condition or disability that affects your ability to drive, you will need to provide a medical certificate confirming your fitness to drive before your licence can be replaced.
  • If you tell us you now need glasses when driving, the condition needs to be recorded on your licence.
  • If you tell us you don't need glasses (when previously you did) you will need to take an eye test to have this condition removed from your licence.

Call Service SA on 13 10 84 for advice on replacing your licence.

If you tell us you are disqualified, suspended or otherwise prevented from holding or obtaining a driver's licence, you will not be able to replace your licence.
