Using the address for correspondence with DVLA, Electoral Roll/Register, Government,
Banking, Insurance etc
DVLA (Driving and Vehicle Licensing Authority)
The address can be used for correspondence with the DVLA. As far as using the address
for driving licences is concerned, the DVLA will treat each request on a case by
case basis. Only under certain circumstances can the free correspondence street address
be used for a driving licence. Please refer to the guidance at the link below. More
details are available via this link
The address can only be used for Electoral Register purposes if you have ‘a local
connection’ with it. Detailed guidance is available via this link
The Government requires an address to send communications to you. We can receive
these on your behalf and then send or scan. (e.g. tax, health, social security including
payments and bus passes).
Banking and Insurance
Customers can use the free correspondence address as a contact point for their Banking
and Insurance needs.
Nowadays, most of the communication with banks (statements etc.) and insurance companies
can be made electronically. There are times when they will need to send you something
such as policy documents, PIN numbers or new/replacement credit/debit cards. We can
accept these and forward them on to you wherever you are in the world.
Please note that the correspondence address is not an address where Boatmail’s customers’
vehicles are kept and should not be declared as such for insurance purposes.
