Liverpool DVLA Office

Even before the Local Office Network closures, Liverpool did not actually have its own DVLA branch. When the 39 DVLA local offices still operated, the closest offices to Liverpool were in Chester, Manchester, and Preston. These three offices subsequently closed along with all the others at the end of 2013. Previously the following addresses housed the DVLA offices closest to Liverpool:


DVLA Chester, Norroy House, Nuns Road, Chester, CH1 2ND (approx 28 miles away)

DVLA Manchester, Trafford House, Chester Road, Manchester, M32 0SL (approx 33 miles away)

DVLA Preston, Fulwood Park, Caxton Road, Fulwood, Preston, PR2 9NZ (approx 40 miles away)


Several workers from the Chester DVLA office transferred to the new main office in Swansea. One such worker, an administrative officer named Susan, praised the transition. For some offices, the closures went more smoothly than others. Roomzzz Hotel, Sport & Fashion Technology Ltd, and a business park replaced each of these DVLA locations respectively.

Since the DVLA shut down its local offices to move online and cut costs, the travelling distance to the nearest DVLA office increased for Liverpudlians. The only remaining DVLA office operates in Swansea at the address listed above. You can still contact the Swansea DVLA office using the details provided here.

At the top of this page, you will find a phone number in green, which you can call to reach DVLA customer services. Post Offices often provide many of the DVLA’s services, so call to find your nearest branch instead. The government made the DVLA a largely digital service, so you can also call to find out how to access these services online. The main page lists all the information you’ll need to contact the DVLA for more information, including various helplines and opening hours.
