DVS Alert Us

Reporting suspicious, unethical or corrupt behaviour actively helps the DVS improve business practices and provides valuable information to help reduce unlawful and suspicious activity.

  About DVS Alert Us

The DVS Alert Us phone and email contact has been established to provide an avenue for Driver and Vehicle Services (DVS) customers and members of the community who wish to report suspicious, unethical or corrupt behaviour relating to a driver, a vehicle or a person's identity.

Reporting suspicious, unethical or corrupt behaviour actively helps the DVS improve business practices and provides valuable information to help reduce unlawful and suspicious activity.

The DVS Alert Us telephone line and email should only be used to report incidences relating to the conduct of vehicle, driver's and identity licensing transactions and processes. This may include a person employed by DVS who you believe may be committing unlawful acts when performing their licensing duties.

You can report suspicious, unethical or corrupt behaviour using the 'DVS Alert Us' email address, telephone number or mail. You may remain anonymous.

  What DVS does with the information you provide

All reports we receive are acted on, so there is no need to send us further copies of the same report. For privacy reasons, no information can be provided to you on the progress or outcome of our investigations.

Sometimes the information we are provided is too general to investigate, however it can still help us to identify fraud trends, high-risk activities and issues that should be monitored.

We only collect information relevant for the investigation of matters relating to Western Australian legislation dealing with vehicles, drivers and identities.
