Birmingham DVLA Office
DVLA Registered Office, 30 Granby Avenue, Garretts Green, Birmingham, B33 0SD
At the end of December 2013, the DVLA Birmingham office closed and the services moved to the new DVLA head office in Swansea, Wales. As well as the Birmingham DVLA, the whole of the DVLA’s Local Office Network shut down. The move to a central location aimed to save money and make the system more digitally focused. Most of the DVLA’s services moved onto their government-provided website.
Supposedly, the creation of the central office in Swansea generated more jobs than those lost by the closing of the local offices. To date, the previous location of the Birmingham DVLA office remains empty. The property company Telereal Trillium still lists the Granbury Avenue building as available to let on its website. While Birmingham citizens can’t visit a DVLA office in person anymore, there are plenty of ways to take care of DVLA business.
