Motorists are warned about driving licence renewal reminders received by text or email.

Driving licence

DVLA has been made aware that some customers have received text messages or emails regarding a licence which is due for renewal.

DVLA does not send these types of reminders by text or email, these services are in no way affiliated with DVLA and you may be charged more.

By using the online driving licence transactions on GOV.UK you can be sure that you are dealing directly with DVLA and you will not be charged any additional fees for your driving licence. Your application will be completed online without the need for a postal application in the majority of cases.

You can find the online driving licence services in the driving licences section of GOV.UK.
