Important news update from the DVLA
The Driving and Vehicle Licensing Agency have recently sent out a warning to the public in accordance with a recent scam that has been floating around the UK. This scam involves false emails reaching random people and claiming to be the DVLA. The email asks you to provide your driving license and confirm credit card details.
Do not believe the scam;
The DVLA have recently become aware of mock emails and a website that is made to look like the DVLA online service. If you receive an email that threatens that you may lose your license and subsequently asks for your driving license and payment information, this is a SCAM and we recommend that any emails of this kind should be completely ignored.
The DVLA do NOT send any emails regarding the loss of licenses alongside links to websites or the requirement of payment information. Anyone who receives this email or anything similar please do not open the link to the mock website. We recommend that you simply delete the email and ignore it completely.
An investigation is being held;
The DVLA would like to give the public peace of mind knowing that the problem is being fully investigated by the authorities and will hopefully be resolved quickly. When dealing with driving license or vehicle tax issues, please ensure you are using the GOV.UK link so that you are sure you are dealing directly with the DVLA and not a false website.
