DRIVING LICENCE COUTERPART

Due to the changes made on the 8th June 2015 the paper counterpart to the licence is no longer valid.

You are able to print licence details at home from https://www.gov.uk/view-driving-licence or Google search VIEW MY LICENCE.

You then need to Share your licence information, from this page you click the button marked Create a code the next page will give you a check code from here you should choose:

View, print or save your licence licence information

You must then print the prepared PDF and bring this with you when you collect the vehicle, DVLA have now changed the validity period for the check, the code is now valid for 21 days. This should look as the image at the bottom of this page.

The above options are the only available to prevent a DVLA admin charge being made.


All the options below will incur an admin charge of £5.00

We can check your licence information directly with DVLA by phone when you are in the office, this is only available with DVLA 8am to 7pm Monday to Friday and 8.30am to 2.00pm on Saturday

Outside of these hours we are able to arrange a check in the office you will need your NI Number in order to do this, if you do not know your NI Number we are unable to assist with the check.

If you do not have internet access then you can call DVLA on 0300 083 0013 to obtain a check code, the code is now valid for 21 days.


We are still awaiting the outcome of having direct DVLA access via the “Access Driver Data scheme” due to the cost of implementing this service if it is implemented then there will be a DVLA admin charge added to every hire, there are considerable costs to us from DVLA to implement this service.
