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.”
