Since the 8th June 2015, the paper counterpart driving licence is no longer valid and is no longer
issued by the DVLA. Some insurers require you to provide details of your driving licence information
and as the counterpart driving licence is now invalid, you will be required to share your licence details
by carrying out the following process:
You can use this link https://www.gov.uk/view-driving-licence to create a licence ‘check code’ to
share your driving record with someone, or you can print the details or save & send it by email.
The ‘check code’ will be valid for 21 days.
To view or share your driving licence details you will need:
a) your driving licence number
b) your National Insurance Number
c) the postcode on your driving licence
