Data requests from DVLA

Certain companies and buyers can request specialist vehicle data from DVLA, including the ‘bulk data set’, ‘anonymised data set’ and vehicle mileage data.

You can also request details of a vehicle’s registered keeper and certain other information from DVLA if you have ‘reasonable cause’.

DVLA provides certain companies with the ‘anonymised data set’, mainly used for marketing purposes, and containing vehicle identifying information including make, model and partial postcode.

Mileage data
