Mike Gapes MP attended an event on Monday 21 January to show support for the win by signing a dedicated congratulations board.
Mike said “The Post Office is a vital part of our local and national life. and has long provided essential every day government services. I am dedicated to ensuring local residents can easily access services they need and think this is another step in reaching that goal.”
Martin Moran, Commercial Director at the Post Office said: “We are delighted to have the support of Mike Gapes MP. The Post Office has a strong track record in successfully delivering essential government services. Winning the DVLA contract again is testimony to the quality of our staff and sub postmasters, whose longstanding commitment to serving local communities contributed greatly to this success.”
The Post Office secured the seven year Framework Agreement with Department of Transport in November 2012. It confirms that the Post Office will continue to deliver DVLA services from spring 2013, including:
- Driving Licence photo card renewal
- Motor Vehicle Licence Issue
- Statutory off road notices (SORN)
- Duplicate Vehicle Licence.
Many other driver transactions and motor vehicles services will also be offered through Post Office branches as a result of the agreement, meaning customers will be able to access a wide range of DVLA services under one roof.
