The Department for Transport does not keep statistics on the number of cloned vehicles as this is a matter for the police.

If the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) is notified of a suspected cloned vehicle, it will investigate and where appropriate, amend the vehicle record and issue a replacement vehicle registration number. The DVLA will also pass on any intelligence gathered to the police.
