Abandoned vehicles - Reporting abandoned vehicles

Every year Bassetlaw District Council investigates numerous reports of abandoned vehicles. Some of these turn out to be genuinely abandoned and have to be removed and destroyed after enquiries into their ownership.

It is important that you have the following details available when you report it to us:-

  • Is the vehicle taxed?
  • The exact location of the vehicle
  • The vehicle make, model and colour
  • The vehicle registration number

Please note that if the vehicle is taxed, it is not technically abandoned.

Untaxed vehicles that are on public roads are not the responsibility of the local authority and should be reported through to the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA). For further assistance regarding untaxed vehicles please contact themĀ on 0300 790 6802.
