Application Processing Time

The Licensing and Regulation Division processes new private security licence applications and private security licence renewals as they are received.

We endeavour to process all applications within 28 calendar days of their receipt.

There may be instances where the processing of your application is prolonged due to deficiencies in your application or the need to review your application more thoroughly.

We are unable to respond to enquiries relating to the processing status of licence applications received within the last 28 days.

If 28 calendar days have elapsed since the date of receipt of your application and you require an update, please contact us via email with your full name, date of birth, type of application, date of lodgement and licence number if available.
