Found 6th Oct 2015
I have visited the site and entered my details but it just shows me my licence details and no sign of this 'check code'

Any ideas?

It's the new online system. Paper counterpart is now defunct and useless so you need a code to give to hire company so they can check your licence online for endorsements.

exactly - quite worrying the number of people who arent aware of this stupid new system which could potentially ruin the start of peoples holidays.

​then those people should have been reading the news papers and online news as there was more than a big enough fuss made about it at the time.
is this to hire a car abroad or to take a hired car abroad?
In my experience hire car companies just want to see you credit card style driving license. I have never been asked for the code abroad (I hire cars abroad a lot for work).

Only place that wanted it was a private specialist car hire place in the UK.
