DVLA warns the public 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 has not sent out an email asking customers to update or verify their details.
DVLA is aware that some members of the public have received these emails and it strongly advises anyone who receives one of these or any similar email, to ignore it and not to follow the instructions given.
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 taxtransactions on GOV.UK you can be sure that you are dealing directly withDVLA.
