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 and entering their Licence Number, National Insurance Number and Postcode.
Once the licence is displayed the driver needs to click on the Tab “SHARE LICENCE” which is top right of the DVLA page.
Scroll down the next page and click on the green Button, Create Code.
We will need this code when you come to collect your vehicle and recommend either printing it off or taking a picture on your phone.
If you are unable to create a code online you can ring the DVLA on 0300 083 0013
