Office Contact Number
Leeds 0844 453 0118

The local DVLA Leeds office was closed down at the end of 2013, as part of a full-organisation restructure that saw the complete shutdown of 39 DVLA Local offices around the country and a change in the way the DVLA itself operates, shifting the focus from dozens of local centres to one centralised location.

This move allowed the DVLA to establish its base of operations in Swansea, Wales, and begin working largely via the internet – by focusing on online services, the DVLA is able to quickly and efficiently respond to enquiries at any time of the day or night, regardless of where in the country the customer is. As the DVLA is the primary Government agency regulating drivers, driving licences and road safety standards, these enquiries may be for any reason and are usually very important.

To contact the central DVLA office in Swansea, use the dedicated customer enquiries phone number listed at the side of this page.

What Can The DVLA Do For Me?

Being an official branch of Government dedicated to registering and monitoring driving licences and vehicles, the DVLA can provide help with a variety of services. Its four main areas of responsibility are:

  • Issuing driving licences and ensuring tests meet the right standard of quality
  • Car tax and ensuring every driver has a valid tax disk
  • Registering vehicle ownership and updating records when vehicles change hands
  • Selling and tracking personalised registration plates

More Information About DVLA Leeds
