From 8 June 2015 the photo card licence paper counterpart will be officially withdrawn. At the same time paper driving licences will no longer be updated with endorsements. From then on the records held by the DVLA will be the only way of checking endorsements.
If you run a business and have Motor Fleet or Motor Trade insurance you may be wondering how will you check that your employees are entitled to drive?
You will be able to view an employee’s entitlements or endorsements by using www.gov.uk/check-driving-licence to allow you to check the licence using the code provided by the driver.
With the driver’s consent you can view the details on a driving licence, e.g. the vehicle categories they’re entitled to drive and any endorsements or penalty points by using a code provided by the driver using our free Share Driving Licence service. This service also gives you the option to print or save a copy of the information.
Alternatively an employee can call DVLA and give permission for their driving record to be checked verbally by a nominated person/organisation.
If you are unsure of any of the above please feel free to contact us on 01637 876876 and we will be happy to help.
