First it was booking a driver theory test online. Now it seems that 3rd party websites are happy to review that your driving licence application is correct before submitting it for you. You are of course then charged handsomely for the privilege!
DVLA warns that when applying online for your driving licence, you should always make sure you use the official GOV.UK site.
DVLA has been made aware of several websites offering a check and send service for driving licence applications. These services are in no way affiliated with DVLA. You may come across these websites in the sponsored links or paid-for results section when using online search engines. The Office of Fair Trading has ruled that websites which charge additional fees and services are not acting illegally.
These websites will claim to offer value-added services to ensure your application is correct before you send it to DVLA. However, using this service will mean you can end up paying as much as 3 times the normal price for your driving licence, and all you will receive is a paper application form that has been completed for you.
To order a driving licence, you should also do this directly on the Governments website.
