Checking driving licences

Release Date: 

The BVRLA has updated its factsheet on checking driving licences.

Members can use the Access to Driver Data system at a cost of £0.70 per enquiry, providing access to drivers’ details such as their entitlement to drive and any endorsements.

In April, the cost was reduced from £0.90 to £0.70 per transaction to make it more accessible. It is also possible to pay an annual set fee. The service is available 24/7 via an online portal.

Members are reminded that consent is required from the driver when carrying out checks and this can be captured electronically.

For more information about how to access the system contact BVRLA Legal and Policy Executive, Amanda Brandon.
