To comply with new regulations in NSW, all drivers in Sydney are required to have a Passenger Transport Licence Code (PTLC) added to their driver’s licence.
If you don’t have one, you will need to apply with NSW Transport Roads & Maritime Services (RMS). You can access the RMS form.
How to apply for the PTLC?
Applying for the PTLC is free. It takes only 5 minutes to complete and you can expect to hear back from RMS within 14 business days.
The following will be requested by RMS during the application process:
- A valid NSW Driver’s Licence
- Proof of identification (e.g. a valid Passport or Australian Birth Certificate)
- Completion of a commercial standard medical test (if you declare a medical condition)
If you held a valid Driver Authority on 31 October 2017, you will be automatically transitioned to the new regulatory framework. You will receive a letter from RMS to inform you of the process and what action to take. Please contact RMS if you have not received this letter.
