Apply for a proof of age card

People aged at least 17 years and 11 months are eligible to apply for a proof of age card. A proof of age card doesn't expire.

If you have a South Australian photographic driver’s licence or learner’s permit, or have had one in the past, you can apply online. Otherwise you'll need to apply in person to establish your identity.

You can apply for a proof of age card online if you have a mySA GOV account.

With an account, you can store a legally-compliant digital proof of age card using the mySA GOV app.

Fee: $25.00

Apply in person

To apply in person for a proof of age card attend a Service SA customer service centre with:

  • a completed application for a proof of age card (106.5 KB PDF)
  • evidence of identity:
    • combined identification documents need to show full name, date of birth, signature and current South Australian residential address
    • if you already have a South Australian photographic driver's licence or learner's permit you may not need to supply full evidence of identity
  • pay the fee of $25.00 and have your photo taken.

What happens next

You should receive your proof of age card in the post within three weeks.

If you have not received the card within 21 days phone Service SA on 13 10 84. If you don't contact Service SA within 30 days of the original application you may need to pay the fee to have your proof of age card re-issued.

Replacement cards

If your proof of age card has been damaged, lost or stolen, apply for a new card using the processes on this page. You may not need to supply full evidence of identity.

If you have a mySA GOV account, you can store your card on a smartphone using the mySA GOV app.
