A furious motorist has issued a warning to other drivers after the DVLA clamped her vehicle because she didn’t pay her car tax bill – of £0.00.
Sharon Taylor was left unable to drive her low carbon emission one-litre Peugeot 208 after the DVLA clamped it because she hadn’t paid her road tax, despite the car being exempt.
The 46-year-old cabin crew member was then forced to pay £100 to have the clamp removed.
Sharon, from Kirkcaldy, was visiting her mum in hospital when her car was clamped.
She said: “My car is below the carbon emission level so there is no value to my road tax, I told them this.
“They said I should have ‘paid’ it on their website anyway and sent me a bill saying I owe them five times the zero fee.”
A DVLA spokesman said: “All vehicles must be licensed, even if they are subject to a nil rate of tax.”
