    DVLA selling personal details.

    DVLA selling personal details. 8th Nov 18 at 7:27 PM
    Good evening. I hope everyone is well. I was wondering how I could stop the DVLA from selling my personal details to any old Mickey Mouse Private Parking Enforcement firms? I am not happy that these companies can just buy my information from the DVLA. Is this legal?

    For Debt Collection, local authorities and Emergency Services I can understand it and have no issue with it. But these barely legal unregulated firms? I have an issue with that.

    Is there some way I could opt out of this? Inform the DVLA that I do not wish this? The DVLA website seems to be somewhat vague on this matter.

    Private Parking ticket? check the 2 sticky threads by coupon-mad and crabman in the Parking Tickets, Fines & Parking Board forum for the latest advice or maybe try pepipoo or C.A.G. or legal beagles forums if you need legal advice as well because this parking forum is not about debt collectors or legal matters per se

    The DVLA are fully aware they work with scammers. Just another failure of the May government

    Done-to-death topic over many years. Eager new gums bumped, cascading blood everywhere. No progress!
    Please note, we are not a legal, residential or credit advice forum, rather one that helps motorists fight private parking charges, primarily at the 'front-end' of the process.

    Become a Freeman of The Land and make up the rules as you go along. Shout a lot about common law, and wet ink signatures.

    It doesn't matter if you don't understand it, just shout louder and more indignantly, but also record any confrontations on a shaky camera phone in portrait format.

    You could then upload these to your own Youtube channel to make friends with fellow wibbleheads and shout at each other in your own echo chamber of pseudo-legal nonsense.


    Or sell your car and get the bus or taxi if you don't want the DVLA to pass on your details.
