Sharing Your Licence Information
Changes to Driving Licences 8th June 2015.
 
The driving licence counterpart was abolished on the 8th June 2015. The driving licence now only consists of the photocard.
If you still have your paper licence that was issued before the introduction of the photocard will remain valid.
Any endorsements, penalty points and driving bans will no longer be recorded on driving licences, but will be instead accessible online.
 
Sharing of Information.
 
There will be occassions when you as an Individual or an organisation will need to access your driving licence information, these could included either of the following:
  • An Insurance Company
  • A Car Hire Company
  • A Driving Instructor or Driving School
  • Your employer ( for the purposes of driving the company vehicle or driving to your workplace)
Methods of sharing Licence Information.
 
There are 4 options to enable me, your driving Instructor to access your driving licence information. 
 
  • 1.       On the 1st lesson using my laptop or smartphone with Internet access
  • 2.       Before 1st lesson by checking your own details and printing the information to give to me on your first lesson.
  • 3.       Before 1st lesson by checking your own details and then generating a check code which can be used by me once within 21 days.
  • 4.       By telephoning the DVLA
OPTION 1.    1st Lesson using Laptop or smartphone with internet access
 
  1. You will need your driving licence, national Insurance number and postcode.
  2. Your Instructor will enter your driving licence number, national insurance number and postcode as shown on the licence
  3. Your Instructor will then be able to view your details, the vehicles you are able to drive and any penalty points or disqualifications.
  4. Your Instructor then may save the webpage or save as a screenshot so they have evidence of making the entitlement check.
 
OPTION 2.   Checking your own details
 
Following the same steps as in OPTION 1, then click on " Share Licence Information"
 
This will create a code, you will then be given a choice to either " view, print or save your licence information"
 
Click print, then bring the information on your 1st Lesson. Your instructor may retain the printout as evidence the the check has been made.
 
OPTION 3.   Generating Check Code
 
Following the same steps as in OPTION 1, click on " Share Licence Information".
 
This will then create a code which you can pass onto your Instructor. The code is case sensitive, can only be used once and is valid upto 21 days.
 
Your Driving Instructor can then log onto  www.gov.uk/check-driving-licence   and enter the last 8 digits of your driving licence number and the code you generated and supplied. He will then be able to see your information about your driving licence to either print or save.
 
OPTION 4.   Telephoning DVLA
 
If any of the 3 options above are not possible you will need to telephone the DVLA on 0300 790 6801
 
You must leave permission for your driving record to be checked verbally by a nominated person/organisation.
 
Once you have done this your driving instructor can telephone the DVLA on 0906 139 3837, this is expensive as calls can cost 50p per minute or more. 
 
Your driving instructor will need your full name as it apppears on your licence, address with postcode and your date of birth.
 
Permission will remain with the DVLA for 7 days.
 
The total cost of the telephone call to use this sevice provided by the DVLA may be passed on to you.
