High Risk Licence Queensland - Online Applications


Please note that the application process for high-risk licences in Queensland has recently changed.

Workplace Health and Safety Queensland has recently implemented an online application process, replacing the Australia Post hard copy application.

The online application process can be accessed by following the link below within 60 days of successfully completing the practical assessment.

Apply for a high-risk work licence Queensland

When applying for a licence please note that you will need the following documents/information:

  • LHRW Assessment Summary - AS1 form/s issued by a Queensland Accredited Assessor.
  • Details of their QGov/Google/Microsoft account. If you do not have one of these accounts you can register for a QGov account during the application process.
  • A valid email address.
  • The customer reference number (CRN) from one of the following Queensland Transport and Main Roads (TMR) issued licence cards:

    • i.e. Driver's Licence;
    • Proof of age card;
    • Marine licence indicator card; or
    • Industry authority card.

  • If you do not hold one of these cards you can still lodge your application; Workplace Health and Safety Queensland will contact you after you have lodged the online application to provide information about how to obtain a TMR CRN.
  • Details of any photographic HRW licences you hold that were issued by another state, territory or the Commonwealth.
  • A credit or debit visa card to pay the $88.40 application fee

We note that interstate residents can apply for a Queensland HRW licence as long as they were trained and assessed in Queensland by a Queensland based registered training organisation (RTO) and assessor.

If you have any questions regarding this process then please feel free to get in touch with the team at WorkSafe Connect.
