Driving Licence Enquiries – 0300 790 6801
Phone the DVLA on their dedicated driving licence phone number 0300 790 6801 to apply for your first provisional licence or to replace a lost or stolen drivers licence. Driving without a licence is a serious offence in the UK so you must get one and pass your driving test before you can drive on your own on public roads. Even if you have a licence failing to produce your correct documents is still an offence so it is very important that you replace a lost or stolen licence as soon as possible.
Complaints – 0300 790 6801
Contact the DVLA (Driving & Vehicle Licensing Agency) on their phone number 0300 790 6801 to make a complaint about how a member of their staff has handled your enquiries. Furthermore if you believe you have been repeatedly overcharged for your vehicle tax then you can call this number to apply for compensation. Similarly if you have been denied a driving licence unfairly then you can dial this helpline to resolve the matter. Alternatively you can write to their dedicated complaints department by using the postal address below, however please note you will get a faster response if you call them.
Vehicle taxation & registration – 0300 790 6802
Call the DVLA on their dedicated telephone contact number 0300 790 6802 to get your vehicle taxed and to notify them that you have bought or sold a vehicle. Driving without paying car tax is a criminal offence in the UK so it is highly important that pay as quickly as possible.
