- communications network operator.
How to apply

Step 2. Take your completed form to your nearest SAFE NT office or police station.
After you apply
Your application for a criminal check may take several weeks to be processed by the police.
Once your application is processed you will get a National Police Certificate.
Certificates are valid for three months from the date of release.
Submit your police certificate
Once you have received your National Police Certificate, you must submit the original document along with your other application documents to:
- any MVR office
- or a police outstation if you're a remote resident.
If your criminal check reveals an offence, your application will be forwarded to the Commercial Passenger Vehicle branch to be assessed against guidelines.
Certain criminal offences, serious traffic offences or a pattern of offending may affect your application. Read about fit and proper assessment and disqualifying offences in the transport industry.
