    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.

    Interesting suggestions lol. I see that you can fill in form V888 from the DVLA and just get an individuals personal details.

    I wonder if I can get a copy of the form sent in to get mine under the FOI?

    V888 asks why you need the info and they can refuse.

    That's suppose to stop rogue trader types but .... doubt the DVLA could care less, they provide info to scammers at the best of times

    people that use v888/3 and KADOE are NOT checked , that is the job for BPA/IPC

    several people using basic v888/1 have been prosecuted for falsely asking for data

    OK, so someone drives into you and drives off without stopping. You have their VRN, do you not have just cause to obtain their number from the DVLA?


    You have not thought this through.
    You never know how far you can go until you go too far.

    One argument is simple.

    An individual leaves their violent ex. Ex knows the registration of their vehicle and fills in a V888 and obtains the persons new address details.

    Now this is an 'if/but/maybe' but still a possibility. Would such a person care if they lie on the form or not?

    Only the local authorities, County Court bailiffs and emergency services should have access to this personal information.

    No-one else.

    upon kicking off with the DVLA , there are seven organisations that can ask for data , however only TWO , the BPA and the IPC are able to allow there members (audited by them) to get info relating to PRIVATE PARKING #]


    so , your insurance one hits a brick wall , as they can BUT NOT FOR PRIVATE PARKING
