Report an abandoned vehicle

If you think a vehicle has been abandoned - it may have been in the same place for a long time, be in poor condition or vandalised - let us know and we'll remove it as soon as possible.

Check if a vehicle is taxed - if it's not, report it to the DVLA and they'll remove it.
