All Students to create a *DRIVING LICENCE CHECK CODE*

New driving licence regulations came into force on 8th June 2015 which makes the paper counterpart of your licence no longer valid As driver trainers we need to know what vehicles you are legally permitted to drive and what current convictions you have For us to be able to do this we need you to help us a little by going online and log on to the government website (https://www.gov.uk/view-driving-licence) Before you start make sure you have:

  • Your driving licence number
  • Your national insurance number
  • The postcode on your licence

Once on the government website type in the search bar view driving licence https://www.gov.uk/view-driving-licence Click on view and share your driving licence information Click the Start now and follow instructions, click on view now and go to the share information tab Click on create a code (PLEASE ONLY COMPLETE WITHIN 21 DAYS OF STARTING TRAINING COURSE) Bring this code along with the last eight figures of your driving licence number and we should then be able to check what we need to on arrival. ** PLEASE DO NOT USE THE CODE! AS THIS WILL EXPIRE AFTER ONE USE (WE WILL CHECK ON ARRIVAL)**
