Courtesy vehicles are available if you need to keep mobile whilst your car is with us.
The cost to hire the courtesy car is a one off fee of £10 which covers your on Vasstech's insurance.
When collecting a vehicle from a hire company many only ask to see your photocard licence or your pre-1998 paper licence – but some also want to check whether you have any penalty points. They may ask for a code so that they can check your licence online or for a printout of your licence details.
What’s needed varies from company to company and between locations, so it is essential that you check with your hire company before you travel.
You can go online to obtain a code to give to your hire company. Each code is valid for 21 days from the date you obtain it and it can only be used once (to protect your privacy). You can have up to 15 active check codes at any given time.
To obtain a code or a printout:
If you cannot get a code online then you can call DVLA on 0300 083 0013. You’ll need to answer some security questions to validate your identity before we give you a code
The counterpart contained information such as any penalty points you have. Similarly, old-style paper licences, issued until 1998, are still valid but they won’t be updated with penalty points. Instead, you can now view all your up-to-date driving licence information using DVLA’s view driving licence service. See the link below
