Proving Your Entitlement To Drive
The driving licence now consists of the photocard only.
Any endorsements, penalty points or driving bans are now only accessible online. For that reason, your driving instructor will need to check your provisional licence to see the type of vehicles you are allowed to drive. Your instructor will also look at the information regarding penalty points and or disqualifications. The checks will be made before your first lesson.
A case sensitive code will need to be generated which will allow your driving instructor to check your licence details:
You will need
- Your driver number from your driving licence
- National insurance number
- The postcode on your driving licence
Go to this website
Enter your driving licence number, national insurance number and postcode as shown on your driving licence.
Click on “share licence information”. A code will be created. The code is case sensitive. The code will only be valid for 21 days.
Pass the code to your Instructor together with the last eight characters of your driving licence number.
Before your first driving lesson, your Instructor will view your licence details online.
We will ask you to bring your provisional photocard licence on your first driving lesson for identification purposes. Failure to do so will mean the lesson will not be able to continue.
At the start of your first driving lesson, an eyesight test will be conducted. If you wear glasses bring them with you. If you use contact lenses you must have them in. You must pass the eyesight test for the driving lesson to continue.
Glasses or contact lenses must be worn every time you drive if you need them to meet the ‘standards of vision for driving’.
You must tell if you’ve got any problem with your eyesight that affects both of your eyes, or the remaining eye if you only have one eye.
This doesn’t include being short or long sighted or colour blind. You don’t need to say if you’ve had surgery to correct short-sightedness and can meet the eyesight standards of vision for driving.
Check if you need to tell DVLA about your eyesight problem by searching the A to Z of medical conditions that could affect your driving.
Reading the Highway Code before taking your driving lesson will help you understand the rules of the road.
