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.

DVLA Reports

@Douglas4Moray No response from @CharlotteV Might I ask you to investigate why there has been no announcement that DVLA online payment system has been not working for a week? @ScotNational @thecourieruk Can the taxpayer afford this? twitter.com/GrahamEllery1/…

@trudi_ward @DVLAgovuk Anyone who has seen @BBCWatchdog will know that there are big problems at @DVLAgovuk, but this seems to be a new one!

@MintyBaubles My Mum has been waiting for ages for her licence too, thousands are out of work, purely down to these useless bastard dvla bosses not providingg a safe working environment, and we are all on the receiving end.

@Zczoe_ @BenBrown_2 @PoliticsForAlI @Telegraph Nightmare innit. I need dvla for my job and just cannot get through to them. As long as they at home on their 100% wages though what does it matter about us 🙄 I did get a reply from the email address I gave you but if everyone is trying then it’s probably not working

@BBCPolitics Whilst the media deal with the content of @BorisJohnson #PMQs and technology problems, I wonder why, if we have had #FreedomDay, why the few MP’s in #Parliament are sitting 2 metres apart and wearing masks. Bet you won’t find that in #backlog ridden @DVLAgovuk Swansea offices.

@DVLAgovuk @DVLAgovuk How can I apply for a lost license? Your phone lines say they’re busy and can’t connect? your Webchat say it’s not possible to find any advisors? your online application system shows an error like below? You’ve closed all the doors possible to apply! #dvladown pic.twitter.com/TF2qErqGOZ

@quevega @ScienceOfRacing @steeplechasing @BHAPressOffice @weatherbysltd Yes that can be a grey area again. The keeper part is not working as well but new Equine Premises Numbers will help. We moved 2 yesterday and I will update today. Change of ownership costs money, unlike cars, where the DVLA sees knowledge as more important than profit.

Think that your work day is not going to be great? Imagine working for the DVLA and not being able to open the office door as its stuffed with 1.5 million unopened letters 🤪

@DVLAgovuk hi a v5c was issued dec 15 2020 for our car is this ok or is it due to the problems we are all having with the health worries kind regards🙂

@DVLAgovuk It might be if you are 70 but not if you are changing address and renewing you Group 2 photo licence. @DVLA have taken months to respond and you can’t talk to anyone. If working from home is as productive than the office, what is going on with DVLA?
