DVLA Problems

The DVLA, also know as the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency, is a place to register new number plates, change address on your driving license or even check a certain vehicle. Although if you’re currently visiting the website and you find yourself having some issues along the way, then you’re in the right place to give our writers the heads up, so that they’ll be able to guide you along the way until everything has been resolved, as of in the past there have been several outage leaving my people feeling slightly annoyed.

@DVLAgovuk 2 problems we need help with: mother over 80 applied for new licence in February - no licence received. Daughter 17 applied for provisional May - no licence received. No response to emails - no phone help. Suggestions?

@HertsEVs @evcarmike @au_tom_otive @grantshapps Green number plates are not yet available but they are coming soon. We’re working with the DVLA and the number plate industry to amend the legislation and bring them in the next few months. @HertsEVs is correct they will be available for new and existing vehicles.

@Joy997FM the deputy minister is not in Ghana, he go to the DVLA right now and see how the goro boy are working you can not do anything at the DVLA wothout them Mr deputy minister

Overdue Car tax would also not go to a 'Collector Agency' straight away. If the direct debit fails the DVLA tries again within 4 working days. If that fails you get a further email. If you fail to remedy the situation you then get issued an £80 fine. So basically no Bailiffs. pic.twitter.com/ErF5MuI2b8

So according to the DVLA website, I’m not eligible to change my address on my driving license? Lmao yeah okay let’s see how that one goes down with the police if I ever got pulled over 🤷🏼‍♀️😂

Hey @DVLAgovuk I passed my practical test this morning and have been trying to get an insurance on my parents car, but it’s not working because my licence hasn’t been updated by the DVLA according to the insurance company. What’s up with that? 😔

@DVLAgovuk Hi DVLA, are there problems with the online systems this morning? Have been trying to assign my private reg to a new vehicle but keep getting locked out as Service Unavailable. Have tried to call the helpline, but they are swamped with calls and can't get through.

@DVLAgovuk I can’t set up my tax because I keep getting error “your car is not eligible for direct debt payments” The car has previously been taxed by me on a direct debit. But was sorn for a few months because of mechanical problems

@SnideLikeJoshua On occasion due to demand it's not possible to connect. Lines are working, although I appreciate they're busy. Please keep trying & you'll speak to the team. For alternative ways to contact the team please visit: gov.uk/contact-the-dv… . Thanks for your patience. 2/2. -Ingrid.

@DVLAgovuk why isn't the online system to renew medical licence working properly? I've entered the single condition diabetes and it says I've entered multiple conditions. Problems with your algorithms?!
