Motorists are warned that when applying online for your driving licence to always make sure you use the official GOV.UK site.
DVLA has been made aware of websites offering a check and send service for driving licence applications.
These services are in no way affiliated with DVLA.
You may come across these websites in the sponsored links or paid for results section when using online search engines.
These websites will claim to offer value-added services to ensure your application is correct before you send it to DVLA. However, using this service will mean you can end up paying as much as 3 times the normalprice for your driving licence, and all you will receive is a paper application form that has been completed for you.
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 paper application in the majority of cases.
You can find the online driving licence services in the driving licence sectionof GOV.UK.
