Can DVLA crush your car?

Yes, there are situations where the DVLA can crush your car.  The most well publicised situation is where you are driving without insurance.  The new regulations mean you can face a £300 fine, a driving ban and in the worst case, you can see your car crushed.  The DVLA and the police have the right to seize a car without insurance and it could be crushed.

If you don’t have car tax on your vehicle, then you can also face a similar situation.  They have options that range from a fine of £80 through to clamping the car, crushing it and passing your information to a debt collection agency.
