There are various contact numbers on which you can contact the DVLA – we’ve featured the main number below and for a more comprehensive overview please see the DVLA page in the UK Contact Numbers directory.

Vehicle registration is very important because it prevents the use of stolen vehicles as well as helping the UK government collect tax that can be used to maintain public highways. To reach the Vehicle Registration team at the DVLA call 0300 790 6802, which you can also phone to contact an advisor about your vehicle log book.

Before you’re allowed to drive on the roads of the UK, you should first get your provisional driving licence from the DVLA. To learn more about the procedure of getting one or to apply for your first driving license you should call them on 0300 790 6801. If you are an existing driving license holder you can also phone this helpline to get a replacement for a lost or stolen license.

A driver should be healthy in order to control the vehicle he is driving. If you think that you are not physically or mentally capable of driving a vehicle even when you already have a licence as a result of an accident, illness or injury then please inform the DVLA on 0300 790 6806, who will be able to provide you the the assistance necessary for keeping your independence on the road.

If you’re planning on hiring a driver, check your applicants’ licences and records by calling 09061 393 837. Please note that you must get the driver’s permission beforehand, which they can formally do by calling 0300 790 6801.
