DVLA has launched a new advertising campaign targeting areas where vehicle tax evasion is highest - including Lanarkshire.

And, the message is clear – tax it or lose it.

DVLA will be in our area enforcing against vehicles that are untaxed with penalties ranging from fines, court action, clamping and ultimately the loss of your car.

Tim Burton, DVLA Head of Enforcement, said: “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.”

Motorists can go online, 24 hours a day, to tax a vehicle or check whether their vehicle tax is up to date at www.gov.uk/dvla/taxyourvehicle
