From June 8th 2015 all UK Rental Companies will need to check your Driving Endorsements ONLINE.You may check it yourself on the internet no more than 72 hours in advance OR check at the rental office when you collect your vehicle.
This will add a few minutes to the normal procedure so please allow time for this to be done.
This is essential for Rental Companies to do in order to comply with the Insurance Companies Rules.
You can still show the green paper counterpart along with the photo card but it will not be updated after 8th June by DVLA so they have provided a service for checking which works as follows:-
You will need your Driving Licence, National Insurance Number and Post Code.
First the customer must go to this web site address:-
ALL DRIVERS must do this.Web site address:-

They can then print (on ONE page) all of the drivers information. The rental company has to have this information for their Insurance Company.
