From 8 June 2015 the photo card licence counterpart will be officially withdrawn.
At the same time paper driving licences will no longer be updated with endorsements. From then on the records held by the DVLA will be the only way of checking endorsements.
How will you check that your employees are entitled to drive?
The DVLA already provide the ‘View Driving Licence’ service, before the new system comes into place they will provide an additional service; ‘Share Driving Licence’. By logging into the View Driving Licence website, drivers can generate a code which will allow access to the Share Driving Licence website for employers to see the driver’s licence status, endorsements and what vehicles they can drive.
