For all registration and licensing needs related to driving and owning a vehicle you can contact the DVLA on their telephone helplines, just phone 0300 790 6802 for Vehicle Registration queries and call 0300 790 6801 for Driver Licensing enquiries.
Drivers and vehicle owners in the UK must submit themselves and their vehicles to close scrutiny before they are allowed to be on the public roads. This is a safety precaution that’s used by the government to ensure that only fit drivers are able to drive and only reliable and safe standards-compliant vehicles are running on the roads.
DVLA Telephone Numbers
If you want to register a vehicle for use on the UK public roads, then you can contact them on 0300 790 6802 for more information. You should also phone this helpline for enquiries about vehicle tax or if you need to get a new log book, which is also known as a V5C certificate.
If you want to get a driver’s licence or if you have questions about yours, then phone them on 0300 790 6801. Please call this number if you have lost your driving licence or you believe that it has been stolen.
If you have been diagnosed with a medical condition that would alter your ability to drive, then contact 0300 790 6806 to inform them and get helpful advice for keeping you driving.
