I woke up this morning to find a car parked over my drive which was not there last night. I have searched the GOV web page and confirm that the car is MOT to March 2023 and the Tax expired on 31.03.22. I would like this looked into as a matter of urgency. I took me ages this morning to get my car off my drive
Please accept this response as acknowledgement that it has been received. All enquiries relating to abandoned/untaxed vehicles will be investigated fully. The Local Authority can take Enforcement action on a vehicle parked on a public road if its tax has expired for more than 2 calendar months and 1 day. The Local Authority has no powers to remove vehicles with no insurance or MOT, this is a Police matter and can be reported to https://www.police.uk/ pu/ contact-the-police/ . If the land on which the abandoned vehicle is located is occupied, the local authority must give the occupier a minimum of 7 days and if on private land 15 days’ notice is required to confirm that they propose to remove the vehicle. The local authority is not entitled to remove the vehicle if the occupier objects to the proposal.
