Driving licence scam

June 17th 2012. Watch out for emails claiming to be from the DVLA asking you to verify your driving licence details via an online link – it's a scam.

The DVLA has not sent any such email, so if you get one delete it immediately.

This is a copy of the email that is circulating:

From: DVLA
Subject: Update Your License Details

We are currrently upgrading our database and all drivers are required to update and verify there driver's license details.To complete your license verification with us, you are required to fill out the form in the link below.

{Fake link}

Drivers that refuses to upgrade his or her details within two weeks of receiving this verification email will lose his or her driver's License and will have to take a fresh driving test.

We sincerely apologise for any inconviniences this might have caused you.

Thank you for your co-operation.
