From 8 June 2015, the paper counterpart to the UK photocard driving licence will not be valid and will no longer be issued by DVLA and, whilst they will still be valid, “old style” UK paper-based licences will no longer be annotated with endorsements. With effect from this date, any UK driving licence holders hiring a vehicle should ideally use “Share My Driving Licence”, the new online service from the DVLA, for validation of their driving record.
To view and create a one-time passcode the driver should visit gov.uk here where s/he will be asked to submit their:
- Driving licence number
- National Insurance number
The passcode, which will be valid for a maximum period of 21 days from the point it is generated, must be presented and still be valid when picking up any rental vehicle. Any drivers unable to obtain a passcode should call the DVLA Customer Contact Centre on 0300 083 0013 (Mon - Fri 9am - 5pm).
Or alternatively we can process this information at the time of hire commencement at one of our hire locations, the above information will still be required to access the DVLA data and if not provided upon request we will be unable to proceed with the vehicle hire.
