27. In terms of initial services offered, the Passport Validation Service (PVS) is a valuable platform to be built upon. PVS is a service which organisations can already use to check that a British passport, which is presented to them as proof of identity, has been issued validly and has not been reported lost or stolen. For British citizens, this means an assurance of their identity; for business, a reduction in the potential for fraud. For example, using PVS we are already making it easier and more secure to apply to the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) for a driving licence, if you have a recently issued passport.
