In 2004, the DVLA introduced Electronic Vehicle Licensing, which allows customers to pay their car tax online and over the phone. If customers wish to do so, they can also obtain their car tax at their local Post Office branch.
The DVLA offers assistance for driving services including Car Tax, Driving Licences and the issuing of Blue Badges, as well as many others. There is also help provided by the DVLA for drivers of HGVs and LGVs, such as licensing information and up to date legislation. If you are looking for further information about the Highway Code, you can also find this information through the DVLA. They also post any changes to the Highway Code in their latest published version and it is recommended that you read through this, especially if you are planning to take your driving test.
Calls may cost more from mobiles and other networks. You should be aware that you will not be connected directly to a DVLA Customer Service agent. Contact helpline is in no way affiliated with DVLA.
Car Tax must be paid for vehicles that use and/or park on public roads within the United Kingdom. If a car is not being driven, there is still a charge, that is known as SORN.
A Tax Disc has been issued by the DVLA and then displayed in the window of the vehicle, displaying the expiry date. However, as of October 2018, a Tax Disc will no longer be issued and wont need to be displayed within a vehicle. You will still have to make sure you tax your car and will need to keep track on the status of your car tax online.
A Driving Licence is required in the UK to legally operate a vehicle on public roads. A Provisional Licence is granted when learning to driving and upon passing a driving test, a full licence will be given.
A Blue Badge is a permit that is given to those who meet a set of requirements relating to disability and mobility limitations. The recipient is entitled to certain parking privileges, such as being able to use disabled parking spaces and being allowed to park on single or double yellow lines for up to 3 hours.
All problems & issues will be emailed directly to the appropriate departments. Fill in the form and state the nature of your enquiry.
