DVLA’s strategic enquiries platform supports cross-government collaboration

19 Oct 2022

DVLA holds data on every driver in Great Britain and every vehicle in the United Kingdom. As a data driven organisation, we’re committed to supporting cross-government collaboration by providing other government agencies and departments access to our data safely and securely.

As part of our Evolve transformation programme, our strategic enquiries team have built suites of new enquiry services using new technology platforms. This has enabled us to decommission our legacy technology and easily share our data with those who need it, such as the Home Office, His Majesty’s Courts and Tribunals Service (HMCTS), and the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA).

Sharing data can help improve services, bringing benefits to the public and wider government. Our new enquiry services have been used more than 30 million times, saving money for the police and public as well as improving road safety and reducing fraudulent driving tests.

DVLA currently work with:

  • Home Office
  • HMRC
  • HM Courts and Tribunal Service
  • DVSA
  • Dept for Work and Pensions
  • HM Passport Office
  • KADOE (Keeper at Date of Event)
