If the DVLA website is down today, it could be stopping you from doing a multitude of tasks that the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency offers. This ranges from new number plate registrations to a vehicle check, or change of address, but it’s true that these outages seem to be rare for the UK government backed service.
One of the times you might notice the DVLA website go down is when you need a new number plate reg, as such the demand can be very high for custom / personalised plates with the rare options going very quickly. At the time of registration this can mean an outage, and the DVLA number plate check and registration pages will be out for a few hours around the same time each year if demand is high.
Those of you having problems getting online with the DVLA website and find it down right now, please leave a status update below. Also, any length of outage and when you first noticed problems is also welcomed. You will also see other status updates from Down Today readers as well.
