REMINDER TO MOTORISTS AS CAR SEIZED FOR NO TAX IN SANDOWN

Published:

Police are reminding motorists that vehicle excise duty – commonly known as road tax – on your vehicle is non transferable after a car was stopped and seized in Sandown this afternoon (Thursday). 

The owner of the modified Toyota Chaser says that he didn’t know that the previous owner had declared the vehicle as off the road and thought it was taxed until September.

However, in seizing the vehicle, Police reminded the local driver that road tax payments made by the seller of a vehicle for the forthcoming months are non transferable, meaning it is down to the new owner to tax and insure their new vehicle accordingly.

The vehicle was seized on East Yar Road off Avenue Road on behalf of the DVLA.

If the car’s modified you can bet the insurance will be invalid as well.

Why don’t you just shop them to the police then? Or do you think it’s ok?

The police don’t get involved you report them online to dvla and nothing gets done. I’ve done it countless times and the same cars are still untaxed
