Obtain a new driver's licence photo

If you need a new photograph for your driver’s licence or permit, you must renew your licence in person.

Who is this for

People who require a new photograph to renew their licence or permit.

What you need

Your current driver's licence or evidence of identity.

If renewing at a Service SA customer service centre you can apply using the renewal form posted to you, or you can download and complete an application form (134.5 KB PDF) to take with you to Service SA.

If you choose to attend another photo point location you must bring the renewal form received in the post.


See the fees page for driver’s licence and permit fees

What happens next

When you pay you'll be given a temporary licence or permit. This is valid for a period of one calendar month or until you receive it in the mail, whichever is earlier.

If you have the mySA GOV app, you can access a digital version of your licence or permit instantly. 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 new licence or permit within 21 days phone Service SA on 13 10 84. If you don't contact Service SA within 30 days of renewing, you may need to pay a replacement fee.

Contact Service SA


Only send general enquiries online. Service SA will respond within three working days.

If the matter is urgent or is specifically about your current licence or registration, please phone or visit a customer service centre instead.
