DVLA and Home Move Box help drivers moving house

This joint venture will see DVLA leaflets included in the welcome box, explaining what motorists should do when they change address.

David Evans, DVLA’s Director of Corporate Affairs, said: "This is a really good example of how DVLA works in partnership with the private sector to get important messages out to the right people at the right time.

"Moving house is a very busy and exciting time with lots to plan and do, but it’s important not to forget to let us know that you have moved. By working together with Home Move Box, we hope new home movers will find the information leaflets a useful and timely reminder to update their address details with us – just click on www.direct.gov.uk/changeofaddress

We are grateful to Home Move Box for allowing us to include our leaflets in their welcome packs."

Charles Wasdell, Home Move Box Director, said: "At Home Move Box we aim to make life a bit easier for home movers by providing them with all the essential tools they need on the day they move in. There are so many things to organise when you move home, it’s easy to forget to do those seemingly little, but very vital things, such as updating your driving licence.

"With over 20,000 Home Move Boxes being delivered to new households every month, we hope the DVLA’s leaflet will prompt more home movers to update their licence as soon as they have moved."
