Chelmsford DVLA Office
DVLA Registered Office, Swift House, 18 Hoffmanns Way, Chelmsford, CM1 1GU
Until December 2013, 39 local DVLA offices existed across the UK and covered their own areas. Then the DVLA decided to go digital and reduce its physical services, relocating to a single central office in Wales. This decision aimed to save money and streamline services offered by the DVLA with one united headquarters.
Before the closures, Swift House in Chelmsford operated as one of these 39 local DVLA offices. With many transport links such as the nearby motorways and train station, the Chelmsford DVLA office was easy to visit. However, from January 2014 any attempts to contact the DVLA using this address will be unsuccessful. Many other companies now operate from the Swift House offices, including LB Group Accountants and William Thompson Homes Ltd.
Contact the Main DVLA Office

Chelmsford residents can’t visit the main DVLA office in person because it is over 200 miles away in Swansea. You can send any mail such as completed forms or application letters there in order to reach the DVLA headquarters. Since it is the head office, you can still call the Swansea office with questions or issues regarding DVLA services. Find all the details on the Swansea DVLA office on this page.
Although it’s cheaper, often postal communication takes even longer than a physical visit to an office. As accessibility played a big part in the move to digital business, DVLA services are available online. Many Post Office branches provide DVLA services as well. You can learn how to use them by contacting DVLA customer services on the green phone number above. Notify the DVLA of any changes and updates which need to be made using any of the helpline numbers on the main page.
