    DVLA complaints 2017 13th Apr 18 at 3:08 PM
    Yet more evidence of the DVLA's total abdication of responsilbity for ensuring our personal data is safe in their hands:

    It's no real news to regulars on here that the brief is to chuck out a few stock catchphrases like "DVLA takes data protection very seriously" and "robust safeguards are in place", and then use their template paragraphs to push us onto the mercy of a partisan AOS. But what is a bit surprising is there were only 4 written complaints in 2017. The forums suggest there were considerably more.

    If anyone reading this has also complained, perhaps it would be a good idea to add an annotation to this FOIR,so that everyone can see.

    I wonder how the Government would interpret the difference
    between Facebook and Cambridge Analytica .....
    and the DVLA ????

    Seems they all supply data to scammers

    I find this difficult to believe.

    In the last ten years I have made two formal written complaints, both of which were settled in my favour, and I am a genial old gentleman who rarely complains about anything.
