United Kingdom 1988 Defender 90 V8 Petrol ST Arles Blue
Defender Black Clamped!

Haven't seen a clamped car in a while. However saw this one in Marlborough today.

No tax (sorned), no MOT (expired Sept 2018). It is insured though...

No mot = not insured I'm afraid.

Using on a public highway without tax or test? Crush it! It is not a Defender, it is a One_Ten

I wouldn’t be so sure, I think the chain is threaded through the alloy.

I'd be quite happy if they start clamping cars with no tax, mot or insurance! Thumbs Up Bring it on! Not sure who is doing this? It say DVLA but would they actually be doing the clamping?

Sounds a good idea to me, if you make DVLA self funding, like the HSE. If they want more funds they have to go out clamping the illegals and fine them!! James

^^ Goodbye brake line if you try that.

I think that the clamper should really have used the next size up in clamps, the one I use to secure my Defender (next size up) fits much better than that.

Clamping for tax is clearly becoming more common-place, there's an Audi not far from Wolf Towers which spent a month with something that looked like a parking ticket on the screen. and now has a DVLA clamp and "untaxed" branding all over it. I don't know how long these get left before being removed and crushed, but the sooner the better IMO. No excuse.

I imagine that the Marlborough one will be stripped by thieves or stolen in pretty short order.

^^ I think it is very likely to get nicked, who would look twice at a bloke in hivis with a Hiab wagon lifting that away? DVLA contractor, off to the pound, right?

I give it a few days max. Shocked

This is what they do in Belgium if parked illegally. The VW Polo driver ignored police notices that only Morgans were allowed to park outside the town hall that morning.

Hi I’m not making excuses for this but could it be they are on the way to an Mot station after being parked up for a while Question
Hence the no Tax and Mot but it’s insured Thumbs Up Paul

Online databases are not always correct... I'd hope the owner would be given a chance to prove otherwise.

And why crush? What's wrong with confiscation and selling on. That's value for us taxpayers.

not sure how up to date the data base is.

I thought there was a lot blagging going on with people getting insurance and then cancelling it?

I think the insurance companies have a set policy on non-payment of monthly instalments - with notifications at certain intervals so you will only remain on the database for a short time after you default.

I believe that's the theory anyway.
