An application for a TEPS Permit will be processed within one full working day of receipt and, if granted, forwarded to the Master licensee the same day it is approved.

Form P1122 (Temporary Excess Provision of Services Permit) is located on the Application Forms and Fees webpage.

Send the completed form, with the appropriate fee, to SLED for processing. This can be done by one of the following methods:

P1122 applications must be submitted at least one full working day prior to the specified day or period. E.g. Permits requested for work over a weekend must be lodged with SLED by close of business on the preceding Thursday.

The cost of a TEPS permit is $150 per day (or part thereof) for each specified day or each calendar day within a specified period. For example, a request for a TEPS permit from 10pm on a Friday to 6am on a Saturday will cost $300 as the period spans over two calendar days.

A TEPS Permit must be approved prior to the Master licensee providing the additional persons.
