Driving licence checking for insurers
Driving licence checking for insurers will confirm your customer’s entitlement to drive.
What is driving licence checking for insurers?
Driving licence checking for insurers is carried out directly with the source authority the DVLA. It will;
- Validate the driving licence number before checking the information with the DVLA database
- Check driving licence information with the DVLA database overnight
A insurer wishing to carry out a driving licence check requires the permission of the driver.
Why carry out driving licence checking
Driving licence checking for insurers will validate the individual’s entitlement to drive and that they continue to be covered under the policy you provide.
A driving licence check will reduce the risk of fraudulent claims and payments made as a result.
Completed overnight, a driving licence check is quick and easy. The alternative is to manually check a copy of a customers’ driving licence. This takes time and is open to fraud and misinterpretation.
