The DVLA’s new advertising campaign targets drivers in 11 areas around the UK who haven’t taxed their vehicles
Tax it or lose it – that’s the message from the DVLA to drivers who aren’t taxing their vehicles. In a new advertising campaign, the DVLA is highlighting the consequences of tax evasion, which include:
2. Court action
4. Losing the car
The DVLA is targeting areas where vehicle tax evasion is highest:
|Area||Clamped||Fines or penalties||Totals|
DVLA Head of Enforcement Tim Burton said: “This campaign has a clear message for anyone who flouts the law in this way – tax it or lose it.
“It’s never been easier to tax your car, so there really is no excuse. We would rather not have to clamp or remove vehicles, but this campaign highlights the consequences of not taxing a vehicle. Having your vehicle clamped is expensive and inconvenient – and you could end up losing your car.”
