At the end of December 2013, the DVLA Birmingham office was shut down and the services available there were moved to the new DVLA Head Office in Swansea, Wales. This branch made up part of the DVLA’s Local Office Network, which was made up of 39 local offices in and around the UK. The move of all the services to a central location was done in a bid to save money and make the system more online and digitally focused. To contact the DVLA now, please use the DVLA Enquires number, shown to the right side of the screen – or alternately visit their government allocated website.
