Q. I'm having problems registering, what should I do?

Q. I do not hold a full driving licence OR I do not use my own vehicle or drive any other company owned vehicle for business purposes – What should I do?
A. You may be asked to confirm this to your employer so they can exclude you from this process. It is your responsibility however, to ensure you notify your employer if your circumstances change at any time in the future.
Q. Where can I find my driving licence number?
A. If you are a UK licence holder it can be found on the fifth line of the photocard. It is a 16-digit number beginning with the first 5 letters of your last name.
Q. I have moved house but not notified the DVLA. Does this matter?
A. Yes, if you do not notify the DVLA of a change of personal circumstances, for example a change in name and/or permanent address, you are committing an offence which may lead to a £1,000 fine. If your DVLA record is not up-to-date, your licence is not valid and this may, in turn, make any motor insurance policy associated with you null and void. If you have not done this, please return your driving licence to the DVLA for updating and inform them of any changes in your personal circumstances. DriveTech / IDS will not report incorrect addresses to the DVLA.
Q. My photocard has expired but I have not renewed it. Does this matter?
A. Yes, if you have not renewed your photocard licence you are committing an offence which may lead to a £1,000 fine.
Q. I have a number of endorsements for speeding that my employer was not aware of. What happens now?
A. Your employer will want you to retain your licence as much as you do. Depending on the number of and type of endorsements you have and other factors (such as your age and experience), your employer may ask you to attend a speed awareness course, either in the format of on-road training or an e-learning module.
