When we put your question to the DVLA a spokesperson told us: 'Drivers are required by law to let the DVLA know if they change their name or address.'If a driver fails to notify the DVLA of changes, they could face a fine of up to £1,000.'Now, the lingering threat of a fine of a thousand pounds certainly does sound scary, but as you say, there isn't much incentive to update your records with the DVLA if you think you are going to get stung for being honest.
Or, you can hand in your application at any one of the following seven MOT test centres that have a checking service: Remember - you can only make the DVA aware of a Northern Ireland address change.Failing to inform the DVLA when you change address could land you with a £1,000 fine.UK drivers must inform the Government agency whenever they relocate – even if it is temporary, like a move to university during term time, for example.You must tell the Driver & Vehicle Agency (DVA) immediately of any changes to your name, address or your health.Informing the DVA of your changed details will make sure your records are up to date and all future driving licence renewal notices are sent to the right address.
