PayPoint secures DVLA contract for International Driving Permits
PayPoint has been awarded the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) contract for providing International Driving Permits, meaning the Post Office will no longer provide this service.
Described as a multi-year agreement, the service will move from the Post Office to PayPoint’s extensive network of retailer partners across the UK from 1st April 2024.
PayPoint said this was “another important central government service” being added to its portfolio and would maintain “vital access to this service at the heart of communities across the UK”.
An International Driving Permit is a permit that allows you to drive in over 140 countries where a UK driving licence alone may not be enough, including the United Arab Emirates, South Africa, Turkey, Brazil and Japan, with c.300,000 permits issued each year.
Nick Wiles, CEO of PayPoint said: “We are delighted to have been awarded this contract and to forge a new partnership with the DVLA, adding to the growing number of central government services that we operate across our extensive retailer partner network.
“This is positive news for customers as we maintain access to another vital service at the heart of communities across the UK.”
