...getting your DVLA licence check code?

You can use this service to:

  • view your driving record, eg vehicles you can drive
  • create a licence ‘check code’ to share your driving record with someone, eg a car hire company

The ‘check code’ will be valid for 21 days to allow someone to see:

  • what vehicles you can drive
  • any penalty points or disqualifications you have
  • the last 8 characters of your driving licence number

You can’t use this service:

  • if your licence was issued in the Isle of Man* or Northern Ireland
  • to check the progress of a licence application
  • to check historical information, eg expired penalty points

*unnecessary for IOM Licence holders where paper counterparts continue to be issued (call 01624 686825 for clarification if required)
