A Welsh language scheme was published by the central Department in 2004, and is maintained as a living document. The scheme is available on GOV.UK in both Welsh and English.

The Driving Standards Agency (DSA), Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) and the Vehicle Operator Service Agency (VOSA) each have Welsh language schemes. The DSA adopted its current Welsh language scheme in December 2008, the most recent review began in December 2012 and was completed in April 2013.

The DVLA adopted their scheme in 1997 and it was last updated in December 2009 and the VOSA adopted their Welsh language scheme in 2005, revising it in 2010.
