Driving Licence Requirements

Since 8 June 2015, the paper counterpart to the photocard driving licence isn’t valid and is no longer issued by DVLA.

We now need two items to verify your licence details:

  1. Your current photocard driving licence.
  2. A code issued to you by the DVLA share licence details scheme.

To create a code you will need to visit the DVLA website:


On this site you will need to enter your:

  • Driving licence number
  • National insurance number
  • Postcode

After entering this information and accessing your licence details.

  • Click on the link to "Share your licence information"
  • Click on the button "Create a Code"

We need the complete code displayed at this point.

Special notes:

  • The code is case sensitive and we need it in the exact format
    for example xZyHeKiH
  • The code is only valid for 21 days,
    so we suggest letting us have the code the day before your hire

Special note:
We cannot allow drivers with more than six penalty points on their driving licence or disqualified for any reason.
