Welcome to the LBP New Applicants Page

Before commencing your application, please read the information on getting licensed.

If you’re already licensed, go to the login page for existing LBPs.

If you have any questions relating to the application process, please read the apply for licensing page.

The Registrar needs detailed information about you and your qualifications / experience before considering your licence application, so don’t feel like you have to complete this form in one sitting. We encourage you to commence your application when you feel you’re nearly ready to be become licensed and to continue your application over time. Your information will be saved until you are ready to complete and submit your application.

Getting started on the form will assist you to identify any gaps you need to address in preparation for assessment. There are five major steps to the licence application process:

  1. Obtain a RealMe Login – if you already have a RealMe login use that.
  2. Provide Information – tell us about yourself and your qualifications (and experience if it is a Standard application).
  3. Pre-assessment – check to see if you’re ready.
  4. Certify and pay – submit your application.
  5. Assessment – an assessor will contact you to discuss your application.

To start your application now, click Login on the right side of the page!


I don’t have a RealMe login yet.

Click the RealMe Login button on the right and select ‘Create your RealMe login now’. Be sure to choose a user name and password that you can remember, as you will need these every time you log on.

I already have a RealMe login – I want to access LBP online for the first time.

You can use an existing RealMe login to make an LBP online application. Click on the ‘Login’ button on the right and enter your username and password. Note that you can recover your RealMe username and / or password if you forget them. Click the ‘I forgot my username/password’ link. Please do not create another login!
