As previously reported, the paper counterpart to the British driving licence was abolished last month and an online system was introduced for motorists to view and check their driving licence and share their details with employers and car hire companies.

To share their details motorists must generate a code, which can then be redeemed just once by a third party. The code was previously valid for a short period of 72 hours, but now  the check code generated is valid for 21 days.

The driving records held by DVLA can be VIEWED HERE. Drivers/riders can check the information electronically and generate a check code which can then be share with people who need to see such details, ie, an employer or car hire company. The information can also be downloaded and printed.
