Government services are important

There are lots of reasons you might need to access government services, from renewing your drivers licence to searching for lost superannuation funds.

Until recently, accessing government services meant going into town to an office location, and waiting in the queue.

Nowadays, you can access most services from a website or from an app on your phone. Almost everything you need is at the click of your mouse (or tap of your finger).

What can government services do?

As well as helping you manage your personal information, such as your ID and official address, you can also use government services to:

  • save money by applying for rebates
  • apply for discount or concession cards
  • find lost money
  • see the rules or steps for things such as making a will or selling your home
  • check details, like when your car registration is due for renewal.

Being able to do all this online or via an app is much faster and easier than going into an office or even calling on the phone.

What you need to access government services

The way you access different Western Australian government services depends on which service you are using.

You may need to create an account with a username and password, for example when renewing your vehicle licence (registration).

Each service will let you know what you need to provide when you access that service online.
