Check a licence

ALERT: fraudulent licence cards

We have become aware that there may be fraudulent licence cards in circulation. This matter has been passed to the British Transport Police for investigation.

To check that a licence is valid, employers and employment agencies should always:

  • see the physical licence card - not just a scan or photocopy
  • verify the licence by emailing licensing@irse.org or calling the Licensing Registrar on (0)20 7808 1191 with the licence holder's details.
