Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency

An executive agency, also called DVLA

The DVLA is an executive agency of the Department for Transport, responsible for licensing drivers within Great Britain (the Driver and Vehicle Agency (DVA) carry out this function in Northern Ireland), maintaining the database of vehicles within the UK and collecting vehicle excise duty (VED), also known as 'vehicle tax' or 'road tax'.

If you are looking for information regarding driving tests or the 'MOT' within Great Britain, you should contact the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency instead.

Please not use this website to request information regarding your own personal circumstances. You should contact the DVLA by other means instead.
