Before driving lessons can begin I will need to check your driving licence online. I’ll also need to see it on the first driving lesson to check the photo is of you.
All driving instructors should do these checks otherwise you could be driving illegally.
What I need to check your licence
The easiest way to share your licence information with me is to visit https://www.gov.uk/view-driving-licence and generate a QR code for me.
Otherwise you need to email me with BOTH of these:
- The last 8 characters of your driving licence number with the last character being a letter. Licence numbers have a space then two numbers at the end, those two numbers don’t count. If your licence number was “ABCD1234567AB1AB 95″ then the last 8 characters are 567AB1AB
- The code you generate from https://www.gov.uk/view-driving-licence. It’s important that you don’t use this code yourself to log in and check your licence because it can only be used once and then it expires.
You must follow those two simple steps. Please don’t log in yourself and send me a downloaded file, a photo of the screen or anything else.
