Post Office win DVLA contractFollowing a successful campaign fought by a group of MPs including Cheadle's Mark Hunter, the Post Office will continue to offer accessible driving licence and tax services to millions of customers in the UK.

Mr Hunter attended a special House of Commons event earlier this week (Monday 21 January) to show support for the win by signing a dedicated congratulations board.

Commenting, Mark said:

"Local Post Offices are a vital part of our community and have long provided a platform for essential and every day government services.

"I am dedicated to ensuing local residents can easily access services they need and think this is another step in reaching that goal.

"Not everyone wants to conduct their business online and I know many people will be relieved they can still use their local Post Office for this purpose."

Martin Moran, Commercial Director at the Post Office said:

"We are delighted to have Mark's support. 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 subpostmasters, 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 photocard renewal

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.
