You can contact the DVLA on their vehicle registration phone number 0300 790 6802 with any enquiries about a road tax payment, declaring your car off the road with a SORN notice or to discuss the cost of a personalised registration plate.
Vehicle Registration and Tax Enquiries – 0300 790 6802
The Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) is responsible for maintaining a database of drivers and vehicles throughout the UK. The DVLA is therefore responsible for issuing driving licences and collecting vehicle tax from drivers throughout the country, and is therefore an important contact for those travelling to an annual event by car. Accordingly, you should use the DVLA vehicle registration and tax enquiries number 0300 790 6802 to discuss your road tax payments over the phone. Alternatively, learners may wish to contact the DVLA for enquiries about their upcoming theory and driving tests. Similarly, you may have queries regarding the cost of a personalised registration plate for a car, van or motorbike. You may wish to contact the DVLA to ask how to declare your car off the road with an official SORN notice. You can also use this number to perform a vehicle check (VIC) when providing details of the registration plate belonging to a car that you have been in an accident with.
Driving Licence Enquiries – 0300 790 6801
You can also call the DVLA driving licence enquiries number 0300 790 6801 to discuss the process of applying for a UK driving licence. You may have enquiries about a provisional licence, your first full licence or to change the photo ID or address of your current licence. Moreover, you may wish to contact the DVLA to report a driving licence as lost or stolen so a replacement can be sent to your registered address.
Call Costs and Opening Hours
The DVLA uses contact numbers that are prefixed with local area codes, meaning that callers will only be charged the same standard per-minute rate as any other geographic made from a UK mobile or landline. However, callers may be able to contact the DVLA for free if they are using any inclusive free minutes that have been offered as part of a monthly mobile tariff or if they have free calls to local numbers in their landline package. The DVLA call centre is available to take phone calls during the opening hours of 8am-7pm Monday to Friday and from 8am-2pm on Saturdays.
