Driving Licence Scam

Please see the following email that I received this morning. Do not click on the blue update button below.

This is obviously a scam. Please always check the email address that comes with any email you receive. If you look at the one below it is very clear the email did not come from the DVLA. If the DVLA do need to contact you, they would always include your full name and address and your driving licence number.
