Driving licence check

On the 8th June 2015 the UK driving licence has gone through a change.

The Driving Licence Counterpart is no longer valid
and the Photo card will now only be used

The Driving Licence Counterpart was used to display provisional driving licence categories attained and endorsements incurred. Drive 2 Succeed can check your most up to date driving licence information for you, but to do this, you need to go online and obtain a driving licence check code.

You then need to enter the following information, so please ensure you have the appropriate documents at the ready:

  • Driving licence number (found in section 5 of your licence photocard)
  • National Insurance number
  • Postcode of your driving licence registered address.


Get a unique code reference number

Once you have entered these, you will see four pages of information.  From there, click on the following:

  • ‘Share your licence information BETA’
  • ‘Get a code’.

You will then be provided with a unique code reference number e.g. ‘V7s8GJxV’


Send it to us with your driving licence number

Please make a note of this check code and send it to us with your driving licence number.  We will take care of the rest to check your current driving validity.

If you would prefer to go through the Government’s driving licence check and obtain the information yourself, you can also do that online and return your driving licence information to us as soon as possible.
