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
Follow the two steps below to generate a code that I use to check your licence is valid.
This is the only way it can be done. I will not accept a photo of the screen, a PDF file etc.
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
- A generated code. Don’t use the code yourself or I won’t be able to use it – it only works once. You can get a code from https://www.gov.uk/view-driving-licence.
The video below explains why these checks are necessary.
