High risk licences issued interstate

Interstate HRW licences are recognised in Tasmania, however if your licence was issued in another Australian jurisdiction you may apply for a licence transfer in Tasmania.

That is, you can apply to transfer your interstate HRW licence if you now reside in Tasmania.  An application to transfer an interstate licence can be made at a Service Tasmania outlet.  The following documents will be required:

  • a completed application form
  • your current interstate issued HRW licence (a copy will be taken)
  • your evidence of identity documents
  • the application fee

A photo will be taken for the application.

If you now reside in Tasmania and your interstate HRW licence needs to be renewed you may apply for a Tasmanian HRW licence.  If you have a Tasmanian HRW licence and you are now a resident of another state or territory you must renew your licence in that state or territory.
