Driver Licence Card Number (DLCN) and where to find it
To minimise the risk of fraud and identity theft, all Australian State, and Territory governments have introduced a DLCN. This is a unique identifier found on your Driver Licence and it is updated every time your Licence is re-issued, whether that be due to it being stolen, expired, or reported lost.
As part of the verification process, your DLCN is checked against Government and non-Government databases to confirm it’s the most recent version.
The DLCN field is a mandatory field, so it’s important you know where to find it on your Driver Licence.
The DLCN is found either on the front of the Licence and in the middle of the bottom section, OR on the back, bottom right of the Licence. It is alphanumeric (both numbers and letters), and displays 10 characters.
