To get your vehicle registered for use on the UK roads, you need to contact the DVLA telephone helpline on 0300 790 6802.

DVLA Phone Numbers

Vehicle registration is one of the main responsibilities of the DVLA to the UK public. Without registration of vehicles, all vehicles (including unsafe ones) can be driven on the road. Call 0300 790 6802 for more information on how to get your vehicle registered.

Driver licensing is another main function of the DVLA. The DVLA’s role is to weed out those who are not safe to be put on the road behind the wheel. Call 0300 790 6801 for driver licensing information.

If you have recently become unhealthy or otherwise unfit to drive call 0300 790 6806 to inform them about your health and get information on how you can continue to drive safely.

If you’re hiring drivers, then check an applicant’s driving record and licence by calling 09061 393 837, however please note that this is a premium-rate contact number and that you need the employee’s express permission before you contact DVLA.
