Digital tradie licence built into app

Tradespeople now have a more convenient and secure way of giving their customers peace of mind when showing their work credentials through the Service NSW app.

The NSW digital contractor licence is the second trade licence and credential to be digitised, following the launch of the digital white card in April 2021, which has more than 185,000 people using it in the Service NSW app.

The latest updates make it easier for people across NSW to do business, and safety features in the app ensure that customers have proof they are getting their service from legitimate people.

Minister for Small Business and Fair Trading, Eleni Petinos said the new licence app will strengthen consumer safeguards for prospective tradies.

“A digitised licence adds another layer of protection for consumers by allowing them to quickly check details such as name, date of issue and any conditions,” Ms Petinos said.

 “This is a perfect case of a licensing regime keeping pace with modern technology, making it easier for tradies to do business while protecting consumers from dodgy scammers.”

The digital contractor licence can be added through the Service NSW app, which can be downloaded from the Apple App Store or Google Play. It is for individual contractor licence holders only through their MyServiceNSW account.
