Why do I need to contact the DVLA?

If you wish to drive on public roads anywhere in the UK then you need a driver licence from the DVLA and your vehicle needs to be registered and taxed with them. So if you have any queries about driving licences, vehicle registration or vehicle taxation, the DVLA is the right authority to get in touch with.

There are other services which they offer and can help motorists with as well including if you need to declare that your car is currently off-road (SORN) or to request a personalised registration plate. You can also check out cars that you are planning to buy.

If you have any questions or queries about a vehicle log book or a car tax payment, or if you have any health issues which might impact your ability to drive, then you should also get in touch with the relevant DVLA department.

If you have difficulties getting hold of the correct DVLA Department there is also a call forwarding number which you can use: 0300 790 6802. Calls to this number cost 7p per minute plus additional charges and it will connect you through to the DVLA helpline.

The line is provided by Contact DVLA, which is a third party company aiming to help anyone trying to get through to the DVLA in the UK. They understand that it can be difficult to get through to the right person, and how frustrating it can be when you get left on hold.

The Contact DVLA service is committed to holding the very latest contact information for the DVLA as well as information about their services. It means you don’t have to try to work out which is the best line to call – just call our line at 7p per minute and they will find the right DVLA line for you.
