A Driving Licence 'Check Code' - Do you need one?

We are normally able to validate your driving licence on your behalf, but there are some situations where this may not be possible, and we might ask you to generate a 'Check Code'.

On 8 June 2015, the photocard paper counterpart stopped being a legal document and the DVLA also stopped updating any old style paper licences.
For further information on the driving licence changes please click here.

If requested, you need to follow this procedure to generate a 'Check Code', without it you will be unable to hire a vehicle.
  • Please visit View Driving Licence online and login using the required details.
  • Once logged in, using the top navigation, go to 'Share Your Licence information'.
  • Click 'Get Check Code'.
  • Click 'View, Print or Save your licence information'.
  • You should then save this page and email it to us.
  • If you are unable to save it, you should copy the 'Check Code' and email it to us instead. - Be careful, it is case sensitive and can only be used once.
  • If you have any problems in generating a code, you should call the DVLA on 0300 083 0013 (Monday - Friday 9.00am - 5.00pm) for further assistance.
  • This procedure may be required for both photo card driving licences as well as paper driving licences issued before 1998 if we are unable to validate your driving licence.
You might find the following video helpful as it shows you how to get your 'Check Code':
