UK Licence with Photo ID only

From 8 June 2015 UK driving licence holders hiring vehicles within the UK will need to use the new online DVLA service “Share Driving Licence” to validate their driving record as the paper counterpart to the photocard driving licence will no longer be valid.

“Share Driving Licence” will generate a one-time code which is valid for a maximum period of 21 days and requires the driver to submit their driving licence number, National Insurance number and home postcode.
