Motorists warned about scam emails

March 2, 2015   //   No Comments

DVLA is warning of an email scam that asks drivers to verify their driving licence and vehicle tax details via an online link.

The email, which wrongly claims to have been sent from DVLA, appears to be an attempt to trick drivers into providing personal details. DVLA have not sent out an email asking customers to update or verify their details.

The government, led by Cabinet Office’s Government Digital Service (GDS), will continue to investigate reports of organisations which may be actively misleading users about their services or acting illegally, taking swift action when necessary. By using the online driving licence or vehicle tax transactions on GOV.UK you can be sure that you are dealing directly with DVLA.
