DVLA APIs for Local Authorities

The DCLG Local Digital Programme worked with Coalition members and DVLA to discover how DVLA and local authorities could work better together. They produced this report.

The report highlighted parking permit and taxi licensing services as priority areas for API access to DVLA data and digital identity assurance. Therefore, DVLA and the Government Digital Service are running 2 joint discovery events for local authorities and their invited private sector service supporters to better understand local needs of both organisations in making both service areas digital from end-to-end.
