Before we’re able to confirm your subscription, our team will carry out some essential checks on your profile. This is designed to confirm your identity and ensure you’re suitable for a Drover subscription. Our team aim to complete your approval within 48 hours.
What checks do we carry out?
We carry out an identity check, a check on your driving history, and a soft credit search - none of which will affect your credit score. We will require a photo of your driving license and proof of address. In some cases, we may request additional documentation.
This information will only be used to determine whether you can take out a car subscription - none of this information will be shared with any third parties.
There are also a few criteria you have to meet to take out a car subscription with Drover - this is so that your subscription runs smoothly, and to make sure that we can insure you (where applicable).
- Be at least 22 years of age (certain restrictions apply if you are under 25 years old - click here for more details)
- Hold a full UK or EU driving licence (not a provisional licence, paper licence)
- Have held your UK or EU licence for at least 12 months, or be able to provide evidence that your licence was exchanged from a designated country through the DVLA
*If you have held your licence for less than 12 months, you may still apply. However, you will need to provide your own insurance. Details about our self-insurance criteria can be found by clicking here.
Additionally, we cannot approve your account if any of the following apply:
- You have more than 6 points on your licence
- You have more than one CU conviction
- You have any major driving convictions in the last 3 years (DVLA offence codes IN, CD, DR, DD, UT, TT, AC and BA)
- You have been disqualified from driving in the last 5 years
What happens once you’re approved?
You'll be able to subscribe!
Subscribing to a more expensive car?
If you’d like to subscribe to a more expensive car, we’ll need to complete an affordability check. In all cases, this information will be requested by us through our partner Credit Kudos. Credit Kudos is a secure online platform that gathers information using your online banking details, to facilitate our affordability checks. If you'd rather opt out of Credit Kudos, we will contact you to request a bank statement instead and give you full details on how to provide this.
