You can report abandoned vehicles using our online form. 

If the vehicle is blocking your driveway but not abandoned, you'll need to contact the Police.

Is the vehicle abandoned

A vehicle is probably abandoned if: 

  • it's no longer taxed 
  • it's been in the same spot for a long time - eg more than 3 weeks
  • it's damaged with flat tyres, wheels removed or broken windows
  • it's burnt out
  • the number plates are missing

Find out if the vehicle is taxed

Vehicles don't have to display a tax disc any more. 

You can check the tax status online with the DVLA. You just need to know the vehicle registration and make.

Remember to take a note of the date the tax was due - you'll need it when reporting the car to us.

How to report an abandoned vehicle

You can report an untaxed vehicle on a public road to us. 

You'll need to tell us:

  • the date the tax was due
  • the vehicle's make, model, registration number (shown on the number plate) and colour
  • the street where the vehicle is (or nearest street)
  • your contact details in case we have difficulty locating the vehicle
