Tax it or lose it – New DVLA campaign

3 November 2017

Blog, Criminal Defence

The DVLA have introduced a new campaign today, 3 November 2017, warning that vehicles will be taken away if they are not taxed.

The DVLA holds the records of more than 37 million vehicles in the country and untaxed vehicles is becoming a big problem.

Oliver Morley, DVLA Chief Executive, said of the new campaign:

“This campaign targets those who break the law by not taxing their car. While the overwhelming majority of vehicles on the road are licensed correctly, it is only right that we take action against those people who think they can get away with it. The law is clear and so are the consequences – if you don’t tax your car, you risk losing it.”

“The fact is it’s never been easier to tax your car. Our online system is available 24 hours a day and with Direct Debit you can choose spread the cost over the year; there really is no excuse for skipping vehicle tax. Whilst 98% of vehicles on UK roads are taxed correctly, the DVLA is currently clamping or impounding around 10,000 untaxed cars every month.”

Mr & M

Williamsons were recommended to us and we have not been disappointed. Our sale & purchase was very stressful due to the incompetencies of other legal professionals and estate agents however Williamsons have done their utmost to push them to complete. Communication has been excellent throughout and the team, particularly Samantha and Jane, have worked tirelessly on our case. My husband and I highly recommend Williamsons for your conveyancing needs.

over the years that i have dealt with Williamsons solicitors,every time there have succeeded from the conveyancing team to the wills and probate team and the most recent gordon sewell at the civil litigation team ,outstanding professional legal experience along with a winning optimistic way forward. He took on a big challenge and with his knowledge and Williamsons 100+ year experience he won. I would recommend Williamsons solicitors to anyone and to gordon and the team ,a real credit to a local firm that stands out from all the rest.

Gordon Sewell was fantastic went above and beyond to get a good result. I've dealt with a few solicitors over the years but never dealt with a solicitor that will get in the oppositions face to get his point the clients point and for me that drive and determination was key to him winning my case. Gordon Sewell is a credit to williamsons solicitors and I personally would like to thank him and the team for there tremendous hard work.
