If you believe that a car, van or any other vehicle has been abandoned, please report this to us via our Self Service (opens in a new window) portal or call the Police on 101.
To report a vehicle that is un-taxed or un-insured, please contact the DVLA (opens in a new window). If a vehicle is taxed and has a valid MOT then it is unlikely to be considered abandoned. Please visit GOV.UK (opens in a new window) to check the status of a vehicle.
There are strict criteria that a vehicle must meet in order for us to consider it as abandoned and we will work with the DVLA to identify the owner.
