The DVLA are scrapping the counterpart Driving Licence from 8th June 2015.

To hire a vehicle you will need to Share Your Licence.

The first part of the process requires the driving licence holder to generate a unique, one-time use access code for their record. This is done by the driver logging on to the DVLA View Driving Licence service. We will shortly have a direct link to this service on our website.

The driving licence holder may then share the access code, plus the last 8 digits of their driving licence number, to anyone who has a right to see it.

The second part of the process will enable the third party to enter the access code and last 8 digits of the driving licence number via the Share Driving Licence page on GOV.UK. This will allow the third party to see the driverís licence status, endorsements and what vehicles they can drive.
