New MyLicence Driving Licence Facility Check Announced

18th November 2013

MyLicence is an insurance industry initiative which will give brokers, insurers and other providers, the ability to make driver licence checks with the DVLA. This will mean that information on the type of licence held, the number and type of motoring convictions can now be validated automatically and should help to prevent fraud, saving honest motorists around £15 per policy.

The biggest change that brokers will need to make is to start collecting driver licence numbers when quoting. Undergoing a licence check with MyLicence is not compulsory for policyholders, however some insurers may choose not to offer cover if a driving licence number is not supplied as they may suspect fraud.
