  • Thank you for your report,

    Unfortunately, we will be unable to report this car as abandoned vehicle at this time, as it is very unlikely to fit the Abandoned Vehicle criteria, because: The car tax is out of date with one month, and only been there for 2 weeks, as the car is also parked on double yellow, we have passed this to parking enforcement

    As the car is untaxed customer services have reported this car to the DVLA directly to investigate.

    People often confuse a genuinely abandoned vehicle that PCC enforcement team have the powers to tackle and remove, with a nuisance and/or untaxed vehicle we can't do anything about.

    In making this decision the Investigating Officer will consider a range of factors such as the age and condition of the vehicle, whether it is in tax, and anything that indicates that the vehicle is not in regular use. Please see below link on what PCC deal with and how you can report other issues.


    For any future untaxed/no MOT reports can be done through the below links

    To report an Untaxed Vehicle - report-untaxed-vehicle

    To report a Car with No Mot or No Insurance - report-no-mot

    If there is an obstruction of the road or pavement or blocking drive this is the responsibility of the police to investigate and enforce.

    Kind Regards C.S-B Customer Services

    State changed to: No further action
