Many vehicles, which are reported as being abandoned to the Council, are in actual fact simply untaxed.
Are all untaxed vehicles abandoned? No, it is illegal to keep a vehicle with no current vehicle excise duty on the road. If you want to report a vehicle that has no excise duty displayed and is on the highway please inform the DVLA on 0870 2400010 or e-mail: email@example.com.
If you know who owns it, it is unlikely to be classed as abandoned.
When reporting an untaxed vehicle to the DVLA you will need to include:
- Location of the vehicle
- Make, model and colour
- Registration Number
