Micro-chipping away at privacy: Privacy implications created by the new Queensland driver licence proposal

  • Caroline Hart

Abstract

Queensland Transport plans to launch its ‘New Queensland Driver Licence’ Smartcard in 2008.1 The introduction will commence in November 2008 as a pilot with a complete rollout in July 2009.2 Delivery of the smartcard driver licence could be through a public-private partnership, with revenue earned through the partnership helping to offset the costs of the new driver licence.3 The most recent media statement on the proposal, dated 18 January 2007, confirmed that shortlisted bidders had been invited to submit binding bids for the development of the new licence.4 This will make Queensland the first State in Australia to introduce a smartcard driver licence.
