What ID is required to set up an account?

Your Australian Driver's Licence will be used to verify your identity through our online electronic verification (EV) system.  For successful verification, please ensure the details on your Driver's Licence match your application exactly

What happens if I don't pass the check?

If you do not pass the online verification check you will be required to email in a copy of:

  • Australian Driver Licence with your current address
    OR
  • Passport and a Utility Bill (no more than 3 months old - gas, electricity, water or a landline phone bill).  We are unable to accept mobile phone bills.  

Once received, these documents will be verified electronically to ensure its validity. 

We will be in touch with further requirements such as a Medicare card if this does not pass. 

If we are still unable to electronically verify you, you will be asked to upload current certified copies of your passport and a utilities bill (showing your address).

When would I fail the check?

Generally customers that do not pass the check are those that have not been at their residential address for 3 years or more and/or have moved residential address frequently. Other reasons include expired documentation.
