Apart from already listed reasons to contact DVLA, there several other conditions in which contacting DVLA customer service at 0870 025 0121 phone number can save valuable time and money. These conditions include:

Telling DVLA about a Medical Condition or Disability:

It is very important for you to update DVLA if you have a valid driving license; and you have developed a ‘notifiable’ medical condition or disability or if your condition or disability has got worse after getting the license. Notifiable conditions are defined as anything that may result in an individual’s ability to drive safely and with utmost precaution. Such conditions mostly include Epilepsy, Strokes and other major neurological and mental health conditions and physical disabilities. At times, visual impairments are also included in such conditions.

You must check well in advance if you actually need to tell DVLA about your condition. There are different types of forms for each of the medical conditions and disabilities available on their official website, or you can get directly in touch with a customer service agent of DVLA at 0870 025 0121 number. Just in case you fail to inform DVLA in a given time period, you may be fined up to £1,000 or prosecuted in case of an accident.

You may even have to surrender your license to DVLA if the doctor advises you to stop driving immediately because of your medical conditions. Surrendering the license voluntarily may help you get the same back soon without many formalities.

Applying for V5C Vehicle Registration Certificate:

You may apply over the phone by dialing 0870 025 0121 DVLA number or send form V62 in order to get a valid replacement V5C vehicle registration certificate (log book). You are eligible for a replacement if your original V5C certificate has been stolen, lost, damaged, destroyed or haven’t ever received the certificate for the new vehicle. In case you happen to purchase a vehicle without a V5C certificate, you will not be able to tax it legally and even drive it on public roads.

Applying for V5C vehicle registration certificate over the phone is quite easy and it can be done if you were ever shown as the registered keeper on the original registration certificate. The process charges a nominal fess of £25 that you may pay by debit or credit card.
Please note that you will not be able to apply by phone if your name, address or vehicle details do not match with the originals or have been changed.

Replacement certificate may take up to 5 days to get delivered if applied over phone. However, while applying through post, you need to complete form V62 ‘Application for a vehicle registration certificate’ and mail it to DVLA with the same fee of £25 that has to be made by cheque.

Understanding about DVLA Vehicle tax and SORN

It is very important to tax your vehicle be it car, motorcycle or any other vehicle using the reminder letter (V11). Those who do not have a valid reminder letter may use a V5C registration certificate (log book) that is in their name, a new keeper supplement (V5C/2) or the ‘last chance’ warning letter.

In case you do not keep or use your vehicle on a public road, you may even make a SORN (Statutory off Road Notification) in place of taxing it. One may even SORN the vehicle if the vehicle isn’t insured, you want to break a vehicle down for parts before selling it or you wish to buy a vehicle and want to keep it off the road. If you face any difficulty in taxing your vehicle you can always give DVLA a call at 0300 790 6802 to understand more about SORN or DVLA vehicle tax

Book a Driving Test or Upgrading the License:

You may book your driving test for cars, motorcycles, lorries, buses and coaches, and taxis. The service is currently available from 6am to 11:40pm. To apply for the same, you need some valid documents that include UK driving license number, credit or debit card, driving instructor’s personal reference number. You may even book a test to upgrade your current license for which you need to call the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA). The agency is open Monday to Friday, 8am to midday.

Feel free to contact DVSA to get help booking your test. DVSA driving test booking support This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
Telephone: 0300 200 1122

Or give DVLA a call at 0870 025 0121 telephone number and ask for a direct number to DVSA

Registering a Vehicle with DVLA

After purchasing a vehicle, it is very important to get it registered as soon as possible. The process is very simple as you just have to fill in a form and send it to DVLA for verification. However, the form you have to send depends on various circumstances. Before anything, do make sure that the vehicle exists and you solely own it. Also, update the required records because of the changes that have been made to the vehicle. You need to pay a fee of £55 if the registering and taxing of the vehicle is being done for the first time by DVLA.

If you have already registered your vehicle with DVLA and want to update the information you can directly contact DVLA at 0870 025 0121 number and a trained customer agent will help you.

To Renew Your Car Tax: Call DVLA at 0870 025 0121

To drive a vehicle on the roads in the U.K., an individual needs to fulfill certain requirements such as being aware and updated about the traffic rules and regulations. If an individual fails to fulfill any such requirements, then he may not be allowed to drive in the country. While being aware and updated about the rules is essential, it is also crucial to pay the car tax on time. To gain an understanding about the car tax, contact the telephone number of DVLA at 0300 790 6802.

Car tax, also known as the vehicle excise duty, vehicle tax or road tax, is the duty imposed by the government on all the cars that are driven on the public roads of the U.K. Paying it on time is the responsibility of every U.K. car owner. Dial 0870 025 0121 for assistance from DVLA customer care. Wondering about the amount of tax you need to pay and how to calculate the same? With DVLA (Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency), calculating and paying your vehicle tax is easy.

Calculate your Car Tax

Calculating your car tax is not a big task. All you need are the details of either engine size or fuel type and CO2 emissions. This information will depend on the vehicle’s registration date. Contact DVLA customer care number 0300 790 6802 for help.

An individual can check the required information about the car with the DVLA. Getting the information about the vehicle can be faster for those who have the V5C i.e. vehicle registration number. V5C is the vehicle registration document from the DVLA that contains all the necessary information about the car such as the date of registration, name of the manufacturer, the colour and engine size.

The applicable vehicle tax and whether the vehicle is taxed or not can also be done online by simply filling a form. All you need is the registration number, vehicle make and V5C document number (optional). In case of any assistance to know your vehicle information you can easily contact the DVLA customer service number at 0870 025 0121.

To ensure that an individual doesn’t miss out on the date due to pay tax, DVLA sends the timely reminders for the same along with options to pay the amount in total or in installments via a direct debit option or as an installment for 6 months. But, if the tax amount applicable is somewhere around £30 for the year, the person is not allowed to pay the same in installments.

Payment of the vehicle tax can be done online using the reference number mentioned on the reminder form. In case the car is due to have an MOT within the next month, the person cannot pay his tax until the MOT has been done. It must be remembered that a car cannot be taxed without having an MOT and insurance.

Statutory Off Road Notification (SORN)

SORN (Statutory Off Road Notification) implies that an individual has declared his vehicle off the road and is no longer using it on the public roads. This implies that an individual doesn’t need to pay any tax or get its insurance renewed. For more details about SORN, please dial the contact number of DVLA at 0300 790 6802.

An individual must obtain SORN in any of the following situations:

1. The vehicle is not taxed.
2. The vehicle is not insured, whether it is due to a delay in renewing in the policy or a long term plan. 
3. He wants to break a vehicle down for parts before scrapping it.
4. He has bought a vehicle and wants to keep it off the road (one can’t transfer a SORN from the previous keeper).
5. He doesn’t need to make a SORN if he has been sent a V11 reminder letter for a vehicle he has already sold.

Viewing information about the vehicle with the DVLA is easy, whether it is the registration date, SORN validity or engine size. All you need to have is a vehicle’s make and registration number. If you would like to access any kind of information from the DVLA or need some other kind of assistance, you may contact us at the DVLA telephone number at 0870 025 0121.
