The DVLA (Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency) is a government organisation that is responsible for keeping records of UK drivers. The DVLA maintains a database of vehicles and deals with everything that relates to drivers and driving in the UK. Whether you are looking for information on driving licences, road tax or private number plates, you can find plenty of this by calling the DVLA telephone number (0843 479 6665).
The DVLA is based in Swansea in Wales and is reachable on the DVLA telephone number (0843 479 6665). The organisation was first established in 1972 to ‘aid road safety and general law enforcement’ by ensuring that the vehicle registers in its care are properly maintained. In addition to maintaining the registers, the DVLA is required to make them as available as possible, and flexible as possible, to those who want to use them. If you want to access the information that is held on these databases and you have any questions about whether you are able to get hold of the details on the DVLA registers, then call the DVLA contact number.
The DVLA holds a range of information, both personal and non-personal, and this are managed on several different databases. The information databases are huge and more than 43 million drivers’ records are held on them, with a total of 36 million licensed vehicles. If you hold a UK driving licence and you drive a vehicle in the UK then your name and the details of your vehicle will no doubt feature in one of the DVLA databases. When it comes to the details the DVLA holds on individual drivers, it is important that they are informed straight away of any changes, such as a new address or telephone number. You can do this by calling the DVLA telephone number and providing the new information over the phone. If your licence is lost or stolen you should also use the DVLA phone number to notify the agency and to arrange for the issuing of a new one.
As well as dealing with the databases and the management of licences, the DVLA is also a valuable source of information for drivers in the UK as the agency has guidelines on every possible eventuality for those who regularly drive. This includes the legal obligations of a driver in the UK, what kinds of vehicles the different types of driving licences will allow you to drive, driving in other countries on a UK driving licence, and what happens in the event that you receive driving endorsements and disqualifications. You can obtain information and guidance directly from the agency on these subjects – and more – by calling the DVLA telephone number. The DVLA also deals with the issuing of personalized number plates, even though this is something that many people think is done privately. You can usually take part in one of the DVLA online auctions and bid on the number plate that has taken your fancy, with a choice of more than 30 million options. In most cases, this costs no more than £80. For more information, give the agency a call using the DVLA telephone number.
