Register as a driver

To drive KeeleSU vehicles you must first register as a driver with KeeleSU. Once registered this covers you to drive under our motor insurance until the end of the current academic year (31st July). Registration and re-registration must happen during each academic year (1st August to 31st July).

Registering as a driver could not be easier following our simple 4 step process.

 

Step 1

Read and agree to the driver declaration below (you must be logged on to the website in order to agree to the declaration). If you are not a current student then register now for a guest account). The person registering MUST log on or create their own account. Please do not use any other person account. If you do not meet any part of the declaration please contact us in order to proceed (if you do not meet the declaration this does not necessarily mean we cannot register you, it just means we need to obtain more detailed information and carry out more checks before confirming if you can register)

 

Step 2

You need to visit gov.uk website to view your driving license and generate a code for KeeleSU to check your license and driving history. The video below explain more or click here to view a step by step guide. You can visit the gov.uk website by this link (please remember to return to this page after to complete your registration).

www.gov.uk/view-driving-licence

You will need to provide KeeleSU with the generated code and also your driving license number. This will be taken during the checkout process when you pay your fee.

 

Step 3

Pay your registration fee £6 (£5+VAT). This can be done below online, or once you have declared online you can come and pay in person at KeeleSU Reception. You will need your generated code from gov.uk and your driving license number during the checkout process. Your driving license number can be found on the front of your photocard as shown below.

Once you have declared online and made payment of the registration fee you will need to bring in your ACTUAL photocard driving license for inspection and copy to the Security office (on the ground floor of KeeleSU next to reception), or to the Premises office (on the second floor of KeeleSU).
