It's easy to change your address when using the online system that the DVLA have in place. Nonetheless, in most instances it'll make your life less complicated by using the dedicated contact number for DVLA change of address. This way you can ensure your request was processed correctly. While doing so, you will be able to ask any queries you will likely have regarding your driver's license. Fundamentally, things will be easier for you when you speak with a real person. It cuts down on a lot of the confusion.
Why you should Update Your Address
If you update your address with the DVLA, you will have changes made to the following:
• The address on your driving licence.
• Your vehicle logbook address (V5C) will be refreshed
• There will be a new billing address for all payments you need to make to the DVLA.
It is crucial that all this information is kept up to date. It ensures that any correspondence in connection with your licence is sent to the right address. As an example; if you're unlucky enough to be captured by a speed camera, you need to know so that you can be able to pay off your fine or contest the charge. By changing your address, you'll be able to make sure that any notices regarding the renewal of your licence or vehicle tax will be sent to your address. The last thing you want to do is miss those as it may mean paying massive penalties!
You must also make sure that your vehicle is registered to the right address for insurance purposes.
It is important to note that if you do not advise the DVLA as soon as your address changes, you'll be given a fine of up to £1, 000. It will be extremely tough to challenge this fine, which means that you're going to be left substantially out of pocket! Naturally, there is going to be a small grace period of time for the amount of time that you will have to update your driving licence details, but this is not going to be lots of time, so we do suggest that the second you know that something is going to change with your situation, you give the DVLA a telephone call on 0843 133 7178. At least you are able to say you have that taken care of and it does not need to be done again.
