The DVLA has a new licence verification process; on how to share your driving license details if required by your Trainer/Assessor. It requires the creation and use of a one-off code that can then be used to check the licence holders record held on the DVLA’s database. Here’s a quick overview of the process:

How drivers can share their driving record with their Trainer/Assessor

    1. Head to
    2. Enter the driver number and postcode shown on your licence plus your National Insurance number.
    3. Confirm that you have read the privacy notice.
    4. Click on the ‘View Now’ button.
    5. Select the ‘Share your licence information’ tab found in top right of the window.
    6. Click on the ‘Create a Code’ button.
    7. Make a note of the check code which is generated for you – remember it is case sensitive.
    8. Share this check code and the last eight characters of your driving licence number with your Trainer/Assessor so they can view your driving record online.

Remember – the check code is only valid for 21 days after creation and can only be used once.
