DVLA and MIB are delivering first digital sharing initiative for the motor industry

MyLicence is part of a joint initiative between DVLA and MIB delivering the first digital sharing initiative for the motor insurance industry involving driver details.

The initiative is the first of its kind and was developed in partnership with the Association of British Insurers in response to the government’s Insurance Industry Access to Driver Data programme and DVLA’s ongoing aims to digitise the driver data it holds.

The launch of MyLicence is an important step in allowing motor insurers access to driver information. It will act as a deterrent against insurance fraud and in some cases, should reduce insurance premiums for GB motorists. MyLicence aims to protect motorists from unwittingly making false declarations regarding their motoring convictions which could invalidate their insurance and will improve road safety by providing a more accurate risk assessment of drivers.

Participating insurers will need the licence holders permission and driving licence number to allow secure access to entitlements, convictions and other relevant motoring history. You can view your DVLA driving record online, for further information on the MyLicence service, visit MyLicence.
