Updating your licence details
Find out how to update your licence if you’ve changed your address, name, have upgraded a licence class or have acquired an ancillary certificate.
Any of the following documents can be used to show a change in your name:
If you wish to make a change to your gender status in the driver licence and vehicle registration register, you should present an original certificate from Births, Deaths and Marriages that provides evidence of the change to Service Tasmania.
Gender is recorded for all persons with a record in the driver licence and vehicle registration register. It does not appear on the driver licence. Gender can be recorded as M (male), F (female), or X (other category that the person identifies as, including but not limited to indeterminate, intersex, and unspecified).
When you move home, you need to update your licence details within 14 days. Examples of documents that can provide to evidence your change in address can be found in proving a residential, premise or garage address.
You will need to visit or contact Service Tasmania and correct your licence details.
You can call Service Tasmania on 1300 135 513 (or +61 3 6169 9017 if you’re not in Australia).
