DVLA Contact Number

To contact the DVLA about your driver licensing enquiries, just dial their driver licence customer service phone number 0300 790 6801.

Both drivers and vehicles have to be registered with the DVLA (Driver & Vehicle Licensing Agency) before they are legally allowed to be on UK roads.

This is very important because not everyone can be a good driver and similarly not all vehicle are road-worthy. It is the DVLA’s unique responsibility to ensure that only those drivers and vehicle who qualify are made legal in the UK. This is why if you want to get your driver licence, then your skills must be impeccable, and a similarly high standard must be imposed upon the vehicles which are driven in the country.
