The Department for Transport does not hold information about the number of cases of possible vehicle registration number plate cloning. However, between 2012 and 2016 the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency issued 233 replacement registration numbers to vehicle keepers who believed that their vehicle registration number may have been cloned.
