What the insurance company should be asking for is the check code to view your driving license record
car owner uses this website
https://www.gov.uk/view-driving-licence

create a licence ‘check code’ to share your driving record with someone, for example a car hire company
The ‘check code’ will be valid for 21 days
Insurance company only needs to know your check code and the last 8 characters of your driving licence number.

This is now used by car rental company's
