We offer a call connection service, which means you are dialling one of our 09 phone numbers that will appear on your bill, and not the number of the government organisation. This number connects you through to the government department you wish to speak to.

If you find yourself in a queue or disconnected for any reason please call back on the number announced on your call. Alternatively, the contact number can be found on the required organisations website. We are not associated, nor affiliated with any government organisation, but act simply as a cost effective information assistance service.

If you need to apply for, renew or replace a licence, or have any other vehicle enquiry, you may also contact Drivers' Customer Services, Correspondence Team, DVLA, SA6 7JL or the Vehicle Customer Services, DVLA, SA99 1AR. You also may be able to use the vehicle and licensing services at a Post Office®.

Accidents can happen and people are often injured as a result. Ideally, the person or organization who is at fault would agree to provide compensation to cover medical expenses, loss of wages and other impacts of the accident. However, the court system is filled with cases in which those who are at fault refuse to take responsibility. In such cases, hiring a personal injury solicitor is the most effective way to ensure compensation is awarded and received.





Drink Driving Can Ruin Your Life

Any amount of alcohol affects your ability to drive. There is no foolproof way of drinking and staying under the limit, or of knowing how much an individual person can drink and still drive safely.

Each person's tolerance to alcohol depends on a range of factors:

  • weight
  • gender
  • age
  • metabolism
  • current stress levels
  • whether they have eaten recently
  • amount of alcohol

So the only safe option is not to drink alcohol if you plan to drive, and never offer an alcoholic drink to someone else who is intending to drive.

THINK! Strategy For Drink Driving

The THINK! Strategy for drink driving is to remind all drivers of the personal consequences of drink driving, and that a drink driving conviction can ruin your life.

The campaigns focus on the ‘moment of doubt’ around the second pint, when drivers are considering whether or not to have another drink.

Do You Know Your Limits?

With alcohol you might be surprised what your actual daily alcohol intake should be. Here the NHS has a handy alcohol units’ calculator. They also show you how many units are in our drinks plus some other very good information.
