Due to the current lockdown advice and reduced number of staff, the Dash Drive office will temporarily close on Saturday mornings for vehicle collections.
The Dash Drive office will remain open from Monday to Friday 08:30 to 17:00 for all vehicle enquiries, bookings and collections.
Our customers can still book weekend hires online and collect vehicles on the Friday from 13:00 onwards. We offer our weekend hire customers an out of hours return service, by using our key drop off service.
Due to the current COVID-19 guidelines, we have put robust cleaning and sanitising procedures in place to ensure all rental vehicles are presented to our customers to the highest standard.
We will always endeavour to keep customer inconvenience to a minimum, but you may experience some delays or amendments to online booking and collection times.
We are also operating with a maximum capacity of 3 customers in the Dash Drive office at any time so we please ask that you try and arrive as close to your appointment time as possible. We do ask that facial coverings are worn throughout the premises to comply with Government guidelines.
Thank you for your support and we look forward to welcoming you.
Paper Counterpart Abolition
As of the 8th June 2015 the paper counterpart of the UK Driving Licence will be abolished. This means that it will no longer hold up to date information regarding a person’s entitlement to drive. The DVLA advise that as of 8th June 2015 paper counterparts are securely destroyed.
This means that the way we verify renter’s entitlement to drive is changing.
The easiest way to provide your licence details when renting a vehicle from Dash Drive is to use the DVLA’s “Share my Licence” website which can be found at www.gov.uk/view-driving-licence. Here you will need to enter your Driving Licence number along with your National Insurance number and postcode. You will then have access to your driving record online. You can then simply “share your licence information” which will produce a code which we will use to verify your information when you come to collect the vehicle.
If you are unable to access this site then we can call the DVLA Premium service to confirm your driving record at a cost of £5 per licence verification.
If you have any questions please email us email@example.com or call 01209 310767
