The Post Office will continue to offer accessible driving licence and tax services to millions of customers in the UK, including Aberdeenshire.
Sir Robert Smith MP recently attended an event to show support for the win by signing a dedicated congratulations board.
Sir Robert MP said: “The Post Office is a vital part of communities across Aberdeenshire and has long provided a platform for essential and every day government services.
“I am committed to ensuing local residents can easily access services they need and think this is another step in reaching that goal.”
Martin Moran, commercial director at the Post Office said: “We are delighted to have the support of Sir Robert. The Post Office has a strong track record in successfully delivering essential government services.
“Winning the DVLA contract again is testimony to the quality of our staff and subpostmasters, whose longstanding commitment to serving local communities contributed greatly to this success.”
The Post Office secured the seven-year Framework Agreement with Department of Transport in November 2012. It confirms that the Post Office will continue to deliver DVLA services from this spring, including Driving Licence photocard renewal, Motor Vehicle Licence Issue, Statutory off road notices (SORN) and Duplicate Vehicle Licences.
Many other driver transactions and motor vehicles services will also be offered through Post Office branches as a result of the agreement, meaning customers will be able to access a wide range of DVLA services under one roof.
The Post Office, which provides around 170 different services and products, is now independent of Royal Mail and has a national network of over 11,500 branches across the UK, more than all the high street banks combined, and sits at the heart of many communities across the country.
The Post Office has made a commitment to no more branch closure programmes.
