Working for the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency
We do much more than provide driving licences and number plates. We work to ensure the right drivers and vehicles are taxed and on the road. Our work impacts the lives of everybody across the United Kingdom, helping to make our roads some of the safest in the world. Join us and help make a difference.
Simpler, better, safer
We provide innovative digital services to millions of people and businesses. Our software engineers, architects and delivery managers are at the forefront of our digital transformation, supporting our move away from traditional ways of working to new IT driven solutions that provide simpler services to our customers.
From fixing broken printers to creating new digital services, our in-house IT teams are continually finding ways to improve and innovate. You can even check when your vehicle tax is due by asking Alexa or Google Assistant. Remember the tax disc? Replacing it with an online service is just one example of how we're modernising.

I've worked for the DVLA for over 14 years. I started as a telephone adviser and now I manage over 200 people. I'm fortunate to work for an agency that's passionate about development and equal opportunities.

I joined DVLA as a Contact Centre Operations Level 2 Apprentice. After a year I gained promotion and went on to complete Level 3. The support I had from my managers and colleagues was excellent and meant I was able to balance work with my studies. I'd definitely recommend an apprenticeship at DVLA.
We're proud to support our diverse and inclusive workforce with a range of staff networks. We offer opportunities to attend IT trainee apprenticeships, study for an MSc degree and to gain industry recognised qualifications such as The Chartered Institute of Procurement and Supply (CIPS) and The Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD).
