Streetcare Services Frequently Asked Questions

Streetcare Services are able to investigate, and remove if necessary, abandoned vehicles. These are vehicles which have been illegally dumped by their owners to avoid paying for their safe and proper disposal.

An un-licensed vehicle is not necessarily abandoned if you wish to report a vehicle that appears to be un-licensed, the details should be sent in writing or by telephoning your nearest DVLA Local Office. For further details please visit the DVLA reporting an abandoned vehicle web page. This may be done anonymously the details must include:

  • the registration mark;
  • location of the vehicle;
  • the make/model, colour;

Wherever possible, please provide the time it can be seen on the public road and the name and address of the owner. The information provided can then be used for further investigations by an Inquiry Officer who will make a formal sighting of the vehicle and complete a witness statement.
