|Clamping & the Law|
From 28 February 2005 anyone undertaking "licensable vehicle immobilisation activities" will require a licence from the Security Industries Authority (SIA). A licensable activity is immobilising a vehicle with an immobilisation device, including a wheel clamp, on private land against a release fee.
You will need a license, for example, if:
* you are a business providing wheel clamping services, or
* you are an employee who handles the wheel clamping of your car park at work, or
* you are a private land owner who does your own wheel clamping and charges a release fee.
