DVLA cracks down on replacement number plate records

The Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency is cracking down on motor trade businesses that supply replacement number plates but do not keep correct records.

The DVLA and police are making unannounced spot checks on companies that produce replacement number plates, to check that accurate records are being taken.

Mike Owen, RMIF head of aftermarket, said: "Since 2001, businesses have been required by law to keep records of number plate sales.

"To prevent the cloning of vehicle identities for criminal purposes, only those in possession of the correct documentation are permitted to purchase a replacement number plate for a vehicle.

"To avoid punitive action being taken against them, businesses must make sure that they take the proper details, and keep records."
