  1. Hi all, first time poster here, apologies if I get anything wrong! I bought the car two years ago, immediately set up a direct debit and - foolishly now it seems - thought that was that. You all know where this is going... So, last month my car got clamped outside the house, that was the first I knew that my car was untaxed. It turns out I’ve been driving for a year with no tax, I was (and still am) a broken man . I regularly check my MOT and insurance online, but tax - it just never crossed my mind, the direct debit was set up immediately, it renews, so all good? Surely t
  2. Hi all, please has anyone got any advice or experience on my situation? I moved house a while ago. Sent off to DVLA to update license and V5 log book. Licence came back OK. I overlooked the fact the V5 never turned up, and tax was due in Jan. Realised the other week I have been driving for 6 months with no tax, as all reminders sent to old address. Immediately sorted the issue and paid DVLA for current tax and £80 fine. When phoning DVLA, they say I have 3 outstanding fines from DVLA for been identified driving without tax. First offence is just outside th
  3. My van was clamped outside my home early may. I went to the post office, set up a direct debit, then called the clampers and paid the £100 or so clamp fine, clamp was released later that day/eve. I thought that was it. Just received a letter from DVLA conmen asking me to pay fine just short of £200. I was under the impression that if you taxed it and paid the clampers that was it.. I am goinf to appeal it but just wonderd if you had any advice on what I should be saying, will they be softened up if I say I was hoping they would see light if I
  4. Hi, received a letter from DVLA - Or so I think.. It'd for an untaxed vehicle. My vehicle was definitely untaxed and was meaning to sort earlier, it was taxed before I got the letter too.. Asking for over £150 to be paid by full today (I was just about to call to sort but thought I would come on here first). Do DVLA send letters out like this? The fine seems a little too much?!

    Untaxed Vehicle

    My husband had a problem taxing his vehicle as he couldn't find the log book. He eventually found it and taxed the vehicle but 3 days before he got the tax, apparently his vehicle was photographed at 2 a.m. in the morning and an enforcement letter was eventually sent out which we received after we had taxed the vehicle. The vehicle was on our drive not on the street, the DVLA claimed it was photographed around the corner from our house. This is not possible as all the houses on that strip of road have dropped kerbs and there is no way he could have parked there. We queried the n
  6. I got a letter from the dvla that says they have photographic evidence of my car on the road (6/9/2017) and if I did not pay an out of court settlement of £361 by 29/9/2017 they would send it to court to get it. I haven’t taxed it since March and I have taken a few months off work to do some home projects, but I got busted the other day going into town, as above. They say that even if I tax it then the penalty of £361 still stands and I have to pay it to them. Can they do this? Also I just went online to get it taxed and it says that I have not paid since Nov 2016,
  7. After owning the same car for over 20years I found myself needing to replace it. I purchased a car last year (August 17) which was £0 tax. All the relevant paperwork was sent off and i received the new keeper registration document. What I didn't realise is that i needed to register my car online. In November 17 my vehicle was clamped for being untaxed. I was totally shocked and couldn't understand why this was as i did not have to pay tax on it. My mistake. I paid the fine of £100 to get it unclamped after registering the car. I thought that was it. However
  8. Hi, On 27/4/18 I was stopped by a Police traffic car as the car I had just bought and was driving was untaxed. I had no idea the rules had changed, it was insured in my name and the police officer let me continue on the basis that I taxed the car imeadiately, which I did. I've received a letter dated 19/9/16 from DVLA saying that I was stopped in an untaxed car and have to pay an out of court settlement of £376 by 6/10/16. The letter has the wrong registration number (similar, but wrong) and an incorrect spelling of my surname. Do any of these details mean coul
  9. Hi so, I will try to be succinct! We all know the law changed, but I didn't quite get it. I bought a car second hand, it came with a tax disk, I thought I was fine for a few months. Obviously I wasn't, I understand that, and am happy to pay a REASONABLE amount because of this. I was caught on camera on 21st December near Oxford. I was caught on my home street in London on 13th January. I was clamped on 14th of January, costing me £100 to get out. I taxed my car that same day. On 15th January I get two letters, both dated 14th January - obviously these would not be received unt
  10. Hi my father past away on June 3rd my brother in-law was still driving his car so I contacted DVLA to inform them. they sent me back the tax that was left over and unregistered it. 2 weeks later he was still driving it so I contacted them again they said they had past it on to nsl to be towed or clamped, when I phoned nsl they had no idea what I was talking about, so I wrote a complaint to DVLA online. I received a reply saying they would deal with it when they were in the area. 2 weeks later he was still driving it so I wrote another complaint I also told them when they were drivi
  11. This may be a common thread apologies if the information is elsewhere. I've just found a reminder to renew road tax which was due to expire November 30 2015. In my defence since there is no longer a paper road tax disc displayed on my windscreen I had no way of knowing this. I tried to apply for the tax online but since it expired in December and it is now January 10th it wouldn't let me. I eventually managed to pay online for the road tax but it was showing from 1st Jan 2016. In addition the website still shows my car as being untaxed! My question is when should
  12. Hi there need some advice desperately, I have a vehicle which the tax disc has been expired and no mot. The vehicle was clamped late last night friday evening. Notices have been left with usual information, CRIMINAL OFFENCE TO REMOVE. They also give a contact number to call if you want it removed and amounts to pay for 24 hours and more, the problem is they closed over the weekend and state on the page if clamped outside of office hours please contact the pound. Well the number given for the pound is the same for office hours between monday to friday. So what
