1/ Register on-line
This form is designed to allow you to choose a username and password. All the relevant information is then collated in one driver insurance declaration form.
The application requires Moorcar to collect your personal data, driving licence information and driving history. For UK drivers a new system is in operation by the DVLA to automate access to information about your recent driving record. You will be asked to contact the DVLA on a free online Share Driving Licence service. https://www.gov.uk/check-driving-information
This enables you to download your own driving history to send/scan to Moorcar. You can also contact Moorcar with the personal access code supplied by the DVLA so that we can check and download your driving history.
Please read the terms and conditions for membership and then sign after printing off the form. Send a copy to Moorcar Woodstone Barn, Crammers Bridge, Chudleigh. TQ13 0DW with copies of your driving licence history downloaded from the DVLA website or the access code.
