If you suspect a vehicle has been abandoned – possibly because of its appearance/condition or the fact it hasn’t moved for some time – please first check to see if it is taxed by entering the registration number and make on Gov.uk. If it is taxed it is unlikely we will be able to treat is as an abandoned vehicle.
To report an abandoned vehicle, please complete our abandoned vehicle form.
It is an offence to abandon a vehicle. Doing so may lead to a fine of up to £2500 plus removal, disposal and storage costs.
Abandoned vehicles are dangerous, cause pollution and a nuisance.
