Northampton DVLA Office
DVLA Registered Office, Riverside House, Riverside Way, Bedford Road, Northampton, NN1 5PE
The Northampton DVLA office inhabited the ground floor of Riverside House until country-wide DVLA office closures in 2013. Due to agency budget cuts, the DVLA moved its services online and to one physical office in Swansea. All 39 of the DVLA’s local offices consequently shut down for good, including Northampton.
Since then, the postcode of the address above changed from 5PE to 5NX. Today, Riverside House hosts the county council, Northampton Dialysis Unit, Victim Support, and Capita. Recently Barwood Capital acquired the five-floor office building in order to invest in a £1.2 million refurbishment. The particular area of Northampton will re-open to the public in September 2018 after renovation on the university campus finishes.
Unfortunately, the DVLA will not have an office in this refurbished building. While you can no longer attend the Northampton DVLA office to use their services, you can still contact the DVLA in other ways.
