Apply for NT evidence of age card

This card is evidence of your age and is available to any Northern Territory resident aged 18 and over.

The evidence of age card expires five years after issue.

If you change your name or want a new photo you will need to apply for a new card.

When changing your name or photo, you must surrender your old card to the motor vehicle registry (MVR) or a police station, and you must provide evidence of name change documents.

If you are a concession card holder, you are eligible for a free evidence of age card every five years.

If your card gets lost, damaged or stolen, you can get a replacement card if you pay the fee.

Before you apply
