Hi Looking for information here.

 

 

We purchased a little Citroen the other day

Collected it after it had been taxed at 9.10am.

My wife then used it for work transport and parked it on a side road.

When arriving back to her car at 2pm there was a clamp and sticker on it saying no tax.

 

 

i rang the number given on the leaflet and was told car was not taxed.

Yet we had purchased in the morning.

The lady said the car was clamped at 10.05 in the morning.

 

 

Surely DVLA would know that tax would be on it?

So i paid the fine to release the clamp. £100.

 

 

How do i go about getting this back as they are in the wrong.

 

My next question is ,

i was going to cut the clamp off, what would be the legalities regards this??

you should have gotten a confirmation email when you taxed it

 

 

send that to them.

 

 

demand the £100 be refunded

it was taxed at the post office. so have a receipt.

 

 

I had phoned them and said that the car was taxed.

But the reply was.

Thats £100 for the release of the clamp please.

 

 

I have looked for an address for this company www.cartaxenforcement.co.uk

but only find an inpound address for car collection.

no head office to make a complaint to.

 

As regards taking the clamp off myself.

Who takes up the action DVLA

or the company subcontrcting for them. ??

When i noticed that the car was clamped i went online to cheak the tax and it was showing as untaxed that was at 2pm. The tax was purchased at 9.10am so the system had not yet been updated. I was on the phone to them when they did a check and it was showing taxed with them, but still showing as untaxed online. So the system had not updated as yet. Yet was still asked thats £100 please.!!!

 

I so should have removed it myself me thinks.:-x

Make a claim to the DVLA and include a copy of the Post Office receipt. The database not being updated isn't your problem.

If they deny any liability, then send them a letter before action and give them 7 days to refund.

I taxed my vehicle last Friday at the post office using the Direct Debit option. It only showd up as Taxed this morning when i went onto the DVLA site

 

I had a moan at DVLA and there response was to the possibility of being clamped is to show the post office receipt. This is a major fault in they system as in this day and age with electronic transfers it should be instantaneous.

Nothing new.

 

The DVLA has dropped a clamping clanger

 

Has there been a sudden 60%-plus increase in the number of drivers who are choosing to break the law and not tax their cars? Of course there hasn’t. Yet figures released to

Guardian Money by the DVLA reveal that the number of cars clamped for tax infringements has leaped since October 2014 – up from about 5,000 vehicles a month to more

than 8,000. It means that around 100,000 people will be clamped this year by the DVLA compared with 60,000 the year before.

 

Many, if not most, of these drivers who will see their vehicle clamped and towed away will previously have been entirely law -abiding when it comes to taxing their cars.

But they will be caught*out by poorly introduced rules from the DVLA.

Money making [problem] as they know a lot of people will simply pay up
