Use your mobile phone to get a driving licence ‘check code’. You can use the check code to share your driving record (such as vehicles you can drive) with a car hire company or employer.

You’ll get a button on your home screen if you have an Android phone, or a pass in your Apple Wallet if you have an iPhone. With this, you can share your driving record using a:

  • ‘check code’
  • scannable QR code

The codes expire after 21 days and can only be used once.

There’s a different way to share your driving record if you’re using a laptop or desktop computer.
