Checking your pupils’ driving licences

The counterpart driving licence is being abolished on 8th June 2015.  We are required to ensure all drivers of our cars hold a licence to do so.  It was easy to check the paper counterpart for any endorsements or temporary bans but now this has to be done online or over the phone with the DVLA.  In this blog Blaine talks you through 4 options for checking a pupil’s licence.

He has put together the information in this blog for PDIs and ADIs to view, download and use.  Please see below.
