Adult proof of age card

Adult proof of age card

The adult proof of age card:

  • provides proof of age for Queenslanders aged 18 years or older
  • is an ideal form of photo identification for people who don’t hold a driver licence or passport.

The adult proof of age card replaced the 18+ card. If you already hold an 18+ card, it is still valid.

Applying for an adult proof of age card

You can apply for an adult proof of age card at a transport and motoring customer service centre that provides licensing services.

To apply for the card you must:

If you are 18 years or over when you apply, we will post your card to your mailing address within 14 days. If you have signed up for e-reminders we will email you when your adult proof of age card is posted.

If you are under 18 years of age when you apply, we will process your application and send your card to the customer service centre where you submitted your application. We will contact you when your card is available, but you will need to wait until you turn 18 before you can collect your card. If you have signed up for e-reminders, we will email you when your adult proof of age card is posted to the customer service centre.

Customers who already hold an adult proof of age card can apply for a free address label to attach to the back of their card either online or by phoning 13 23 80 or by visiting a transport and motoring customer service centre.

Surrender your licence

If you voluntarily surrender your driver licence or have it cancelled because of a medical condition, you may be able to get an adult proof of age card free so that you still have photo ID.
