Obtaining the Driving Licence Information from DVLA

Driving licence is an essential document that every individual residing in UK and eligible to drive a vehicle possess. The document gives an individual the right to drive a vehicle in the UK and also works as an identity proof. At times, an individual is in need of information related to his or her driving licence urgently but the same is not handy. With DVLA, it’s simpler now.

One can view or share his/her driving licence information as per his/her requirement and convenience. This is not all! DVLA also allows a person to check his/her relative’s or friend’s driving licence information only if he/she has the mandatory details and the permission to view the same.

  • Checking one’s own driving licence information

The DVLA allows one to view and share the details of his/her driving licence as per his/her requirement and convenience. Contact DVLA customer care number for details. On visiting www.viewdrivingrecord.service.gov.uk/driving-record/licence-number, an individual is allowed to do the following:

a)      View his/her driving record.
