I have a question. My parents reported an untaxed and uninsured vehicle to the police. It took 3 weeks for police to respond to the matter and by then the vehicle was insured. The police spoke to the owner who denied using it when it wasn't insured. This was a lie but my parents understood they needed to have two eyewitnesses and there was only one witness (my mum). The police also told them that the askMID online database is not reliable.
However, the vehicle is still being used and is showing as untaxed since September 2015. This can be seen on the government site. The PC on the case wasn't interested stating it wasn't a police matter but a government one. Surely this isn't the case? It was my understanding that driving without tax was illegal and that in most cases it invalidates your car insurance? It is a concern because the car is being used to drive around a vulnerable family member.
Any knowledge on this would be helpful?
