Vehicle Number Plates: Fraud

UIN 71340, tabled on 19 April 2017

To ask the Secretary of State for Justice, how many people have been convicted of vehicle licence plate cloning-related crimes in each year since 2012.

From centrally held data it is not possible to separately identify convictions for offences where vehicle licence plate cloning was involved, without incurring disproportionate cost.

The number of people convicted of offences under the Vehicle Excise and Registration Act 1994 (forgery and fraud of vehicle licence or registration documents etc.) which can include, but is not limited to, cloning number plates, is available at in the Criminal Justice Statistics section.
