I believe this scheme has existed for a long time but I couldn't find any active post about this. An old post is here. Hope this helps some OzBargainers. I personally admire this scheme - it would encourage people to drive safely and also make the safe drivers feel proud.
If you have a good driving record, you may be eligible for a 50% discount on your licence renewal fee (that's approx. $175 saving on 10-year car licence fee).
To qualify, at the time of renewal you must:
- Have held the NSW licence continuously for 5 years. You must have less than 6 months total break, for example if your licence was expired, suspended, cancelled or refused for any reason, except on medical grounds.
- Hold an unrestricted NSW licence of any class. Interstate and overseas licences, NSW learner and provisional P1 and P2 licences are not counted.
- Renew your licence within 6 months of the expiry date. If you renew more than 6 months after expiry, you must pay the full renewal fee.
- Have no relevant offences recorded on your NSW licence. This includes the 5-year period leading up to the date you renew your licence. Interstate and overseas driving records are not counted.
Note: 10 year licence only available for unrestricted licence of class C (car) and/or R (rider) aged 21 to 44 years.
