PayPoint has announced that it has been awarded the Driver & Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) contract for providing international driving permits across its extensive network of retailer partners across the UK.
The multi-year agreement will see the service move from the Post Office to PayPoint from 1 April 2024, adding another important central government service to its portfolio.
“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,” Nick Wiles, PayPoint chief executive, said.
“This is positive news for customers as we maintain access to another vital 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 around 300,000 permits issued each year.
