    Thought this would be the best place to post this, can’t find any information online.

    The DVSA emailed me today asking me questions about my driving instructor, I was wondering if that could be because he has been reported and they are possibly asking his current/previous students about his conduct? Anyone got any ideas as to why they would do this

    In most cases official bodies wont just email the normally write a letter.. so if its asking questions with any personal details of you or anyone else then dont respond until you find a verifiable telephone number and speak to someone there to confirm it's an official request

    To many scam at the moment all trying to get little snippets of info

    Also you could just ignore the email you are not required to respond

    Am email sounds like a scam to me, I would say they would write to you.
