Concessions and discounts


Eligible pensioners receive the following products free of charge:

  • Licences
  • Driving tests
  • Heavy vehicle Competency Based Assessment (CBA) log book and guide.

An eligible pensioner is anyone who holds or receives one of the following:

  • A current Pensioner Concession Card (PCC), issued by Services Australia-Centrelink or the Department of Veterans' Affairs (DVA), showing a NSW address
  • A DVA Gold Card endorsed 'TPI' (Totally & Permanently Incapacitated)
  • A DVA Gold Card endorsed 'EDA' (Extreme Disablement Adjustment)
  • A letter or statement/determination from the Department of Veterans' Affairs, stating that you receive a disability pension of 70 per cent or higher, or an Intermediate or Extreme Disablement Adjustment Pension, or you have been assessed under the Military Rehabilitation and Compensation Act 2004, at 50 or more impairment points
  • A DVA Gold Card endorsed 'War Widow'
  • A DVA Gold Card endorsed 'War Widower'.

A pensioner who acquires a registered vehicle and cancels the registration within the first term may be eligible for a refund of the pro-rata motor vehicle tax.

Interstate-issued pensioner concession cards are not acceptable for claiming a concession in NSW.

Your eligibility for the concession will be validated electronically.

There are a small number of DVA customers who are eligible for pensioner concessions but do not hold a Gold Card or whose endorsed Gold Card will not validate. A letter stating your eligibility for a concession will be required. A letter is not required if your DVA Gold Card is endorsed ‘TPI’ or ‘EDA’.

Discount for safe drivers

If you have a good driving record, you may be eligible for a 50% discount on the licence renewal fee, under the ‘Fair go for safe drivers’ scheme.
