Bristol DVLA Office
DVLA Registered Office, Northleigh House, Lime Kiln Close, Stoke Gifford, Bristol, BS34 8SR
Regional DVLA offices acted as the DVLA authority in their area until all 39 closed at the end of 2013. Due to a reduced budget, the DVLA chose to move its services mainly online. This meant terminating the local DVLA offices and relocating to a single head office in Swansea. Before this happened, Bristol’s local DVLA office took up the ground floor of Northleigh House.
Since the office closure, the building mostly remained empty apart from the Department of Transport and Morris Motors & MOTs. From February to May in 2017, AM Electrical Services Ltd refurbished the office building with modern lighting and IT equipment. Without their local office, the people of Bristol must find other routes to use the DVLA – but luckily, the reformed system actually makes it much easier.

At the top of this page, you’ll find a phone number shown in green. By calling this number you can reach the DVLA customer services team, who will assist with your queries or complaints. The main page of the website has more numbers for specific departments including registration, tax, and license services. When you call, the DVLA can provide all the help you need to ensure a speedier service.
While the main office for the DVLA is in Wales at the above address, you don’t have to worry about travelling there for DVLA business. One of the main points of the closing of limited local offices was to make DVLA services available from anywhere. This is why you can still send mail to the Swansea office, but you can get help from the DVLA over the phone, and submit forms both online and at a more common Post Office branch instead of a DVLA office.
