Europcar helps customers plan ahead for summer vehicle rentals in the UK

Europcar, the leader in car hire services in Europe is reminding holidaymakers that they need to have their driving licence code ready when they pick up their UK hire car this summer.  In 2015, the DVLA abolished the paper counterpart of the UK driving licence. Rental companies cannot access a customer’s driving licence data direct, so the DVLA developed an online system enabling individuals to obtain a code that can then be used by the rental company to check the licence. The code – valid for 21 days – is accessible from the DVLA’s ‘Share Driving Licence’ service. Motorists simply input their driving licence number, National Insurance number and home postcode to generate the code which they then give to a rental company when collecting their vehicle.
