The DVLA’s tips to spot a car tax scam

  1. Only use gov.uk websites when looking for information online so you know the service you’re using is legitimate.

  2. Watch out for scam emails. The DVLA never asks for personal information via email, so if you receive one, ignore it.

  3. Don’t use third party websites that charge additional fees for services free-of-charge on gov.uk websites.

  4. Never use a premium-rate phone number to call the DVLA. All DVLA contact centre numbers begin with 0300 and are charged at local rates.

  5. Don’t share images of your licence or vehicle documents on social media to protect yourself from would-be thieves looking to steal your identity.

  6. Ignore any text messages about vehicle tax refunds. The DVLA never sends texts, so delete them immediately.

  7. Report any suspected scams to Action Fraud immediately to help keep you and others safe from fraudsters.
