The law on car clamping on private land is currently governed by case law and by the Security Industry Act. This Act requires individuals who operate car clamping activities to be licensed under the Act. The Home Office has announced that it will end the practice of car clamping as part of the Government’s Freedom Bill. Once this becomes law, anyone who clamps a car on private land or arranges for it to be towed away will be subject to fines and penalties. There will be some limited exceptions, for example, the DVLA will continue to have the right to clamp or tow away vehicles as part of its role in tackling non-payment of road fund tax.
