Vehicle tax

Vehicle tax enquiries should be directed towards the DVLA. You can check whether a car is taxed on GOV.UK.

Croydon council does not currently deal with vehicles that are untaxed (unless they are also actually abandoned), this is subject to review and this may change in future as outlined in our policy.
