The DVSA has said it has heard reports of DVSA impersonators in the Wiltshire area carrying out roadside checks, and has warned road users to be aware how to spot if a DSVA officer is genuine.
According to the DVSA, their officers:
- Wear a Hi Vis jacket with the DVSA logo
- Carry a warrant card
- Drive a vehicle marked with a black and yellow print with the DVSA logo on the bonnet
The DVSA adds that impersonating DVSA officers is a criminal offence and police are looking into the matter. It isn’t known why there were people impersonating officers; the most likely explanation would be some scammers hoping to get some money from fake fines.
