DVLA bans councils from database over abuses

Hundreds of local authorities have been banned from accessing the Driver Vehicle and Licensing Agency (DVLA) database for not using it properly.

Councils trawl the database of every registered driver in the UK to find the addresses of motorists refusing to pay parking fines, among other things.

It has temporarily banned 294 bodies since 2009, including local councils, Sussex Police and Transport for London.

In addition, 38 organisations have been permanently banned over the same three-year period, including some the UK's biggest local authorities such as Camden, Southwark and Brighton and Hove.
