Once successfully completed, applications for a BLD# can be made online:

Go to Electronic Licence Application Forms, click on application type and be guided through a series of questions.
Once you have completed the electronic application process, print the final document. Review the information and sign in the required areas. You can scan and submit and pay for your application online, or you can print and post your application and payment to us.

The application form, fees, and the required documentation must be sent to Consumer & Business Services for assessment (either by mail or by submitting electronically). If you live in a remote/regional area, you may lodge these documents and payment at a Service SA office or you can post them to Licensing GPO Box 1719 Adelaide 5001, or lodge them in person at their office in Adelaide.

If you fail to provide all the required documentation or fees, they may not be able to accept your application and it will be returned to you for completion. Your application form does have an expiry date. If you fail to lodge the application before the expiry date, you will have to complete a fresh application.
