Apply, renew or upgrade a water drilling licence

Renew your water drilling licence

Northern Territory (NT) driller licences are valid up to five years.

To renew your water bore drilling licence you must follow these steps:  

Step 1. Fill in the application form for grant or renewal of a drilling licence. 

Step 2. Attach two current passport photos.

Step 3. Send your application to your local Water Resources office no later than one month before the expiry date of the licence.

Drillers licensed in the NT wanting to operate outside the Territory will need a separate licence from that state or territory.
