UNTAXED vehicles were caught out and wheel clamped in a Herefordshire town this week.

The DVLA's clamping partner NSL was out in Ross-on-Wye on Monday and Tuesday (November 20 and 21), and they took action against several drivers over untaxed vehicles.

Enforcement was taken against 17 vehicles around the town, some of which were fitted with heavy-duty clamps.

Ross-on-Wye drivers caught out will have to not only pay the tax for the vehicle but also pay a release fee to remove the wheel clamps so they can get back behind the wheel.


A spokesperson for the DVLA, speaking about the latest action, said: "We can confirm that our wheel clamping partners NSL have been in Ross-on-Wye as part of their usual activity on November 20 and 21.

"Wheel clamping is one of a range of enforcement measures DVLA's national wheel clamping partner uses to tackle vehicle tax evasion. As part of their enforcement activities, they travel around to different areas of the country to clamp or impound any untaxed vehicles seen on the road."

DVLA offers a range of options for drivers to pay their vehicle tax, like online services which are available 24 hours a day every day, and direct debit.

It is the law that every vehicle registered in the UK must be taxed before being used or kept in public.
