UK driving Licence holders must provide validation of their driving record called a Share Code to view and create a one-time passcode. Each Driver will be asked for their share code so CitiRental can obtain licence details from the DVLA. Call us before the collection 0207 722 6666 we’ll be happy to do this for you.
