DVLA Data Breach

How was data breached at the DVLA?

From 2016 to the present day the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) has been selling the names and addresses of registered vehicle owners to private parking companies so they can issue fines. It is estimated that around 16 million people might have been affected by this illegal use of personal data. Whilst this is not an obvious form of data breach we believe that this is an example of commercial exploitation and a breach of data protection regulations.

The DVLA holds a large amount of personal data including drivers’ names, addresses, dates of birth, photographs, entitlements, endorsements, relevant medical information, and convictions as well as more details about each registered vehicle. Therefore, the fact that they have sold some of this data is unfair and breaking the trust of drivers around the country.

Can I make a data breach claim against the DVLA?

If you have received a private parking fine from 2016 to present day, the DVLA may have breached your data and you could be owed thousands of pounds in data breach compensation. We can put you in touch with expert data breach solicitors who are putting together a collective group claim that will bring together a large number of registered drivers. To start your claim, you will need to be able to provide evidence that you have been issued with a PCN (for example payment of the fine, original PCN etc), and the name of the parking company and location of the private car park where the fine was given.

Frequently Asked Questions

People have the right to expect that any personal data that they have shared with an organisation, such as the DVLA, is securely stored and handled. When data protection standards have fallen short, and in this case personal data has been sold which is prohibited under UK data protection law, you can make a claim for compensation. Any company that collects your data must complete a DPIA (Data Protection Impact Assessment) to ensure personal data is being lawfully used and processed and investigations have shown that this was not happening in this case. Whilst their privacy policy says that the DVLA might share data with private parking companies, this does not fit with the purpose for which the information was collected i.e., vehicle registration for taxation, licenses, etc.

Also, by passing data on to private parking companies to issue fines the DVLA is compromising the confidence and trust of registered drivers as well as breaking data protection law.

If you think you could have a valid DVLA data breach claim then get in touch with us and we will put you in contact with data breach experts who will make enquiries for you and confirm whether or not you have a valid claim worth pursuing.

We can put you in touch with legal experts who are putting together a group claim whereby the large number of drivers can be part of a collective claim for DVLA data breach compensation.
