In June 2023 there were a total of 41.2 million vehicles on the road.

SOURCE: https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/vehicle-licensing-statistics-april-to-june-2023/vehicle-licensing-statistics-april-to-june-2023

Even allowing for the same vehicles receiving multiple tickets, 30 million requests seems awfully high.

More than 30 million requests have been made to the DVLA for the name and address of vehicle owners,

Then every one of them will be in vain. As far as I know, the DVLA does not hold details of vehicle owners.

At least on the MSN link the article mentions drivers, registered keepers and owners!
Bus driving since 1973. My advice, if you have a PSV licence, destroy it when you get to 65 or you'll be forever in demand.

Over what time? 30 million a year or a week is a lot, 30 million ever, maybe not that surprising.
