Abandoned and Unwanted Vehicles
How to report an abandoned, dumped or untaxed vehicle
A vehicle is usually thought to have been abandoned if it's not taxed, and has not been moved for a long time.
You can check if a vehicle is taxed online: GOV.UK - Check is a vehicle is taxed. If you notice an untaxed vehicle that is still regularly used, you can report it directly to the DVLA - Report an Untaxed Vehicle.
Please use our online form to report an abandoned vehicle.
We also provide a free removal scheme for unwanted privately-owned vehicles. If you wish to get rid of a vehicle that you own, complete and return the.
Once the completed form and vehicle documents are received, we will arrange free collection and disposal of the vehicle.
