Abandoned vehicles

If a vehicle is taxed, it is not considered abandoned.

You can check if the vehicle is taxed and has a current MOT. This search is anonymous.

We can help remove a vehicle if it is:

  • untaxed
  • on public or Council land. This includes grass verges, public access parks and play areas.
  • has not been moved for at least two weeks

If the vehicle is parked unsafely or illegally, or is causing an obstruction, we advise also contacting the Police on 101.

If a vehicle has been left on your property, try and contact the owner. You can request their details directly from the DVLA.

You can also contact the Police on 101 to see if they have any interest in the vehicle. It may have been reported as stolen.
