Post Office wins contract to provide DVLA services


MARK Menzies MP has welcomed an announcement by the Secretary of State for Transport, Patrick McLoughlin, that the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) has awarded a new seven year contract to the Post Office.

The contract will see the Post Office provide DVLA services via their network.

DVLA-related services at the Post Office will also expand to include some functions currently only offered through DVLA local offices.

There is also scope for the provision of other Government services through the post office network.

Patrick McLoughlin MP said: “I congratulate the Post Office and am confident they will deliver an excellent service to motorists throughout the country.

“This contract also provides value for money for the taxpayer, resulting in savings of between £13 million and £15 million a year and demonstrates how serious we are about making savings within Government.

Welcoming the decision, Mark Menzies MP added:  “Today’s announcement is great news. Local post offices sit at the heart of community life, and this decision will make life easier for everyone who drives in Fylde.”
