The fee for vehicle keeper data requests is set at £2.50 per enquiry. This sum covers the cost of releasing the information.

The total income for all data requests is as follows:

2019-20

£23.29m

2020-21

£13.18m

2021-22

The revenue received solely from dealing with requests from private parking companies cannot be separately identified from the wider range of requests for vehicle keeper details for other lawful purposes.
