Paper applications sent to our office in Swansea will take longer to process. This is because we have a reduced number of staff in our building to comply with social distancing requirements and to ensure staff safety.

Thank you for your patience during this time.

The V888/3 application form is for use by companies who issue parking or trespass charge notices. They need to show ‘reasonable cause’ as to why they want information released from DVLA records. This means they will need to explain why they need the information and how they are going to use it.

Our guidance ‘How we give people information from our vehicle record’ (MIS546) gives further information on how to submit your request.
