Glasgow DVLA Office
DVLA Registered Office, Alhambra House, 46 West Campbell Street, Glasgow, G2 6TT
Due to budget restrictions, the DVLA made the choice to disband its network of local offices across the UK. By the end of December 2013, all 39 offices shut down, including the Glasgow DVLA office on West Campbell Street. A new website and a single head office in Wales replaced the previous business model. Concentrated services with a digital focus would prove to be more convenient than a chain of regional DVLA offices.
Despite Alhambra House supposedly undergoing construction to become a chain hotel, the previous home of the Glasgow DVLA remains unlisted. Though several of the office personnel transferred to Swansea, Jack got a job at the Post Office. Coincidentally, this is now one of the places you can go for DVLA business. According to Jack, “it was a pleasure working for the DVLA, you would see the same faces over months and gradually make friends with them. I’m glad I have that in my new job, too.”

As mentioned, Post Offices provide DVLA services. Since the DVLA only ran 39 regional offices before they closed, people can reach the thousands of Post Office branches much more easily. This option is best for things like renewing photocard driving licenses. However, if you’ve changed your name recently, you usually need to contact the DVLA directly.
You can do this by writing a letter and sending it to the Swansea head office. Each department has its own postcode, so find the full address you need on this page. To save time, you might want to look at the DVLA’s online services on their website. Or if you’d still rather speak to an actual person, call the number shown in green at the top or any of the helplines on the main page.
