    Data Protection act allows you to question any/all info that is held about you and the reason for its requirement. Just ask, if they refuse to tell you you're not obliged to provide that information.

    I think so, I lost the paper part of my drving license. When I needed a hire car and the tab was being picked up by someone else's insurance the hire company phoned the DVLA while I was on the line, to confirm my license. However when I need to book a hire car for something else it was impossible.

    My friend works at an insurance company (in claims); they often have a conference call with DVLA to make sure that the customer's licence is as stated. If there's a discrepancy, the claim is denied ('failure to disclose material facts'). By law, they have to cover the 3rd party liability, though.

    This sounds like a simple check to make sure you're not fibbing about any points which may (or may not) lurk on your licence.
