DVLA's current consultations are listed below. Links to closed consultations, summaries of responses and any Impact Assessments (IA) undertaken are also available. We welcome your views as we recognise that effective consultation is a key part of the policymaking process. People’s views can help to shape policy developments.
Consultations are carried out in accordance with the Government’s Consultation Principles. Copies can be found at:

An IA is a tool, which informs policy decisions. It is an assessment of the impact of policy options in terms of the costs, benefits and risks of proposals. An IA is published alongside all legislation that imposes costs on, or realises benefits to, business or civil society organisations.
