The Australian states with the most – and fewest – electric car charging points

New South Wales is officially the state with the largest number of public electric car charging points in Australia – but it has room to improve if it's going to continue servicing the growing number of electric cars on its roads.

SA driver licences going digital from October

The South Australian Government has announced it will roll out technology to allow driver's licences to go digital from October. Available to anyone in South Australia with a learner's permit, provisional, full, or heavy vehicle licence, the new feature is optional and is accessible through the mySA GOV smartphone application. Fingerprint, PIN protection and one-time barcodes that refresh every 30 seconds are some of the security measures being utilised to stop fake licences from being used.
