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.
