DVLA systems are down from this Friday

Release Date: 
13/08/2018

Due to essential systems maintenance, most Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency services, including the contact centre, will be unavailable from 3pm on Friday 17 August until 6am on Monday 20 August or 8am for the contact centre.

During this downtime, members will not be able to call the DVLA to check a customer’s driving licence and customer’s will not be able to generate check codes to allow a rental company to check a driving licence code online.

Rental companies will be able to check a customer’s driving licence if the customer has generated the code in advance or if they are registered on the Government website via Verify, a secure way to prove who you are online.

You can find out more about ‘Verify’ on the Gov.Uk website
