Since the theft of V5C vehicle registration certificates from a supplier or one of their subcontractors was identified in early 2007, discussions have taken place with the ministerial team on action to reduce the impact of the crime and changes have been made.

Processes around the destruction of defective blank V5C vehicle registration certificates have been tightened. Significant investment has been made at the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency to ensure all waste, spoiled or defective documents are destroyed securely on site. Also, tougher contract terms have been introduced for suppliers and more stringent audit controls surround the handling of V5C vehicle registration certificates have been put in to place.
