The DVLA has revealed a list of some of the items found in untaxed cars that were clamped and impounded in the last 12 months.

Personal belongings found in impounded vehicles are catalogued and stored for a period of time in case they are claimed, before being made available for sale.

Bizarre items found by the DVLA

  • Three jockey helmets
  • Off-road quad bike
  • Half a corner sofa
  • Bathroom toilet with seat
  • ‘Beavis & Butthead’ trading cards
  • A quantity of men’s torso mannequins
  • Mercedes C Class O/S/F headlight
  • A highly collectible Louis Wain book of illustrated cats from the 1920s

DVLA head of enforcement, Tim Burton said: “Having your car clamped is expensive and inconvenient – and as this list of items shows, you could end up losing more than just the car.

“DVLA operates a range of measures to make vehicle tax easy to pay and hard to avoid.

“While the vast majority of motorists do the right thing and tax their cars correctly, it is right that we take action against those that break the law and fail to tax their car.

“The law is clear and so are the consequences – tax it or lose it.”
