Post Assessment

Once you’ve successfully completed all the required criteria, and passed your Final Competency Assessment or Competency Test, your assessor will submit your results to Roads and Maritime Services electronically. Note that your assessor will keep your Log Book.

You can then attend a registry or service centre in person and apply for your upgraded licence.

You’ll need to:

Once you pay the required fee, your photo will be taken. Depending on which location you attend, your licence card will either be handed over the counter or posted to you.


The Roads and Maritime Services (RMS) are changing the way they print and issue photo cards. At certain locations, when a client applies for a licence, their card will be posted to them at no extra cost. When a client applies for or renews their licence they will be given a paper receipt. The receipt will act as proof of licence status until their new photo licence arrives.


Your Driving will submit all training course and assessment material to RAISE Training for processing. RAISE Training will issue you with your Statement of Attainment, once your Unique Student Identifier (USI) has been verified or processed.

Unique Student Identifiers

From the 1st of January 2015, all Australians undertaking vocational education and training must have a USI.

When you enrol with RAISE Training, your USI is required so that we can ensure that your results are placed into your USI account.

RAISE Training will need to either verify your existing USI or make an application on your behalf.


You will be asked to participate in a quality survey seeking feedback on your training experiences. Although your participation is voluntar, it is highly valued and appreciated.
