Holding answer received on 20 April 2017

We have already taken steps to tackle rogue and unfair practices by private parking operators, including the banning of wheel clamping and towing.

Private parking companies receive DVLA data on the condition that it will only be used to help follow up alleged parking contraventions. It cannot be further processed for any other purpose. The audit by the Information Commissioner’s Office in March 2016, judged the DVLA’s procedures to offer high assurance that processes to mitigate the risks of non-compliance with the Data Protection Act are in place.
