Licence check code
WHAT IS A CHECK CODE AND WHY DO I NEED IT?
We need you to obtain a check code before we can take you out on the road. This is a code generated instantly by the DVLA online that enables businesses like driving schools, insurers, rental/car hire companies or any authorities to view/verify an individual's driving licence history and entitlement to drive in a secure way.
WHERE DO I GET ONE FROM?
Check codes can be obtained from the official government site:
