NT Licencing & Registration

You are here

Recent changes to the NT Government's website has resulted in an efficient, user-friendly portal:  Driving & Transport 

(formally the MVR website)

Motor Vehicle Licencing

This portal provides action on common issues such as:

  • Acquiring a new licence eg. Learners permit, heavy vehicle or motorbike 
  • Updating licence address details
  • Changing a licence to NT from interstate 

For reference when changing a licence over to NT, the webiste lists Categories A & B for formal identification.  Due to the nature of living remotely and recruiting new station staff, the NT Motor Vehicle Registry commonly accepts the following template as proof of residency:
