Have your say

More than 1200 jobs are at risk under Government proposals to close 39 regional offices of the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA), it has been announced.

The 39 offices are expected to close by the end of 2013, Roads Minister Mike Penning said.

He added that the proposal, which will now be consulted on, “will make dealing with the DVLA easier and quicker for motorists and businesses”.

The proposals affect all 39 of the regional offices the DVLA operates, including those located in Aberdeen, Dundee, Glasgow, Edinburgh and Inverness.
