This car has not moved or been taxed for 18 months. It has been declared SORN and has no MOT but is not on private property, the place it is parked is maintained at public expense and it should be taxed to be parked there. It has been reported to the DVLA but nothing has changed.

  • After 18 months untaxed and unmoved and numerous online reports I wrote to the DVLA complaints department, (that was a challenge to find a correspondence address for), and they sent a waffling reply on the 1st June. Two untaxed cars in the same few square yards, every household has a garage, and there's inadequate parking, and nothing has changed, makes me wonder why I pay £510 to tax a car I do less than 1500 miles in, surely it'd be cheaper to join the untaxed vehicles and cough up for the occasional fine.
