How to claim a seized vehicle
To claim a seized vehicle you must be the legal owner of the vehicle and be able to provide the following documents to prove this
- V5C Vehicle registration Document in your name with your correct address and
- current certificate of motor insurance in your name with your correct address
If we require further proof of legal ownership we would notify you within one working day, any further proofs must be received within two working days from receipt of the request, we will then notify you of a decision within three working days.
Where a vehicle has been claimed you will have 10 working days to collect the vehicle, if the vehicle is not collected within 10 working days it can be sold or destroyed.
If a vehicle is not claimed within 15 working days, it will be sold or destroyed and any proceeds will go against the seizure costs.
