The MyLicence programme is a joint initiative of the DVLA, the Department for Transport, and the insurance industry, represented by the Association of British Insurers (ABI) and the Motor Insurers’ Bureau (MIB). These organisations work together to deliver the service in partnership with insurance brokers, comparison sites, and other industry bodies. MyLicence has been developed to deliver a better experience for you, by reducing costs for safe and honest motorists; tackling fraud; minimising disputes; improving road safety; and delivering a solution that helps speed up the purchase process.
We require access to MyLicence because it’s the only provider of DVLA data in the world. In order to accurately give you a quote, we pull your licence directly from the DVLA using your drivers licence number. This allows us to provide you with an actual quote, instead of just an estimate.
