NFSP launches petition - campaigning to prevent Government removing DVLA services from the Post Office from April 2024

Jun 28, 2023 |


The Driver Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) contract with the Post Office is due to expire in March 2024. This loss is one of many issues which will result in the closure of post offices across the UK.


Post offices carry out over six million DVLA transactions every year, with more than half being paid for in cash over the post office counter. If the contract is lost, the only option for buying DVLA services will be online.


The digitally-excluded and vulnerable people will be the most impacted by this loss of service.


The National Federation of SubPostmasters calls on Government to reverse its decision to remove DVLA services from the Post Office network.


Support your local post office and protect this vital community service.
