DVLA reveals some of the oddest items found in untaxed cars



DVLA has revealed a list of some of the items found in untaxed cars that were clamped and impounded in the last 12 months. As well as everyday items, some unusual artefacts came to light.

The list includes:

  • 3 jockey helmets

  • off-road quad bike

  • an acoustic guitar complete with accessories, stand and carry-case

  • half a corner sofa

  • bathroom toilet with seat

  • fishing rods complete with tackle

  • ‘Beavis & Butthead’ trading cards

  • full drum kit complete with Cort ‘Groove Engine GE15B’ amplifier set

  • a quantity of men’s torso mannequins

  • a highly collectible Louis Wain book of illustrated cats from the 1920s

  • full set of golf clubs

Any 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. DVLA’s 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!
