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.  
If you notice a vehicle is in regular use but does not have a tax disc, you can report it directly to the DVLA.

Please use this 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 doc icon application form [28kb].  

Once the completed form and vehicle documents are received, we will arrange free collection and disposal of the vehicle.
