DVLC - the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Centre was formed in 1974 as a more centralised office to deal with the increasing amount of motoring matters in the UK.

Much as the DVLA operates today- the DVLC worked hand in hand with Local tax offices to handle all aspects of UK motoring from cherished transfers to the issue of driving licenses.


The DVLC became the DVLA in 1990 as the DVLA was the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency- the government moved to using executive agencies for reasons of efficiency and hierarchy.

DVLC registrations

The DVLC created the original sale of marks scheme- which has evolved today into DVLA registrations - covering DVLA Select and DVLA auctions.
