These data sets contain data on current driving licences issued by the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA). The DVLA is responsible for issuing driving licences in Great Britain (GB). Driving licences issued in Northern Ireland are the responsibility of the Northern Ireland Driver & Vehicle Agency and are outside the scope of this release.

DVLA’s drivers database changes constantly as the Agency receives driving licence applications and other information that updates the records of individual drivers. Therefore, it is only possible only to provide a snapshot of the state of the record at a particular time.

Further information about driving licensing can be found at: https://www.gov.uk/browse/driving/driving-licences
