This vehicle has been put down in this close so it’s not showing on the road as untaxed/insured it’s been here around a week and the person doesn’t live in the close.

  • Also report this vehicle to the DVLA via their website, were you checked the tax status, there is a link to report untaxed vehicle. When you do, DO NOT mention that the vehicle is abandoned, as they will refer you back to the local council. DVLA will then take action against the registered keeper.

  • That was not Bexley Council advising you to report that vehicle to the DVLA, I am just a private resident that has had the same problem with untaxed vehicles left in the road were I live. Reporting to the DVLA is sometimes quicker getting the vehicle removed as the DVLA can just remove it with no warning, Local Councils have to go through a sometimes lengthy proceedure to get it removed. I was just surgesting a possible quicker way.( At least the person who left it there will at least get a fine from the DVLA if nothing else)
