Driving Licence


Driving licence with paper counterpart

***IMPORTANT NOTE***

Please read the information concerning your driving licence below as you will need to do this no more than 21 days before hiring a vehicle as from the 8th June 2015.

From 8 June 2015, the paper counterpart to the photocard driving licence will not be valid and will no longer be issued by DVLA. The counterpart was introduced to display driving licence details that could not be included on the photocard. These details include some vehicle categories you are entitled to drive and any endorsement/ penalty points.

 

Sharing your driving licence details

From 8 June 2015, you can request a unique code from GOV.UK https://www.gov.uk/view-driving-licence which will allow you to share your driving licence details or you can download a summary of your driving licence record. The code will last for up to 21 days and will allow the hire companies to make any necessary checks. You can also request a code by calling 0300 083 0013. This also applies if you have a paper licence that was issued before 1998.
