Our abandoned vehicle policy states how we will deal with abandoned vehicles, including a process flowchart and FAQs.
If you wish to report an abandoned vehicle, please see below for reporting options. For any other questions or to claim an abandoned vehicle, please contact the team directly on the email address or phone number listed at the bottom of this page.
Report an abandoned vehicle via My Account - registering for My Account will allow you to see all of your reporting information, and dealings with the council in one place.
You can also download our Don't Mess with Croydon app to report an abandoned vehicle straight to the relevant team.
Vehicle tax enquiries should be directed towards the DVLA. You can check whether a car is taxed on GOV.UK.
While 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.
