How can I claim back my impounded car that has no road tax or MoT?

I have insurance but received no notification regarding my MoT and road tax. I was stopped by the police who told me that i did not have tax nor MOT so my car was impounded. How can i claim it back?

Make an appointment for the car to be MoT tested. Pay the penalty and impound costs. Take it to be MoT'd. Once it has been you can than tax it either online or via a Post Office.
