We investigate and deal with vehicles such as cars, caravans and vans abandoned in Angus.
Checking a vehicle's tax status
If a vehicle has been taxed and appears in good condition, don't report it as abandoned unless it has been in the same place for a considerable length of time.
You can check the GOV.UK website to see if a vehicle has been taxed. You'll need the registration number (number plate) of the vehicle.
If the vehicle is not taxed, or has a SORN but appears to be being used or kept on the road, you can report this through the GOV.UK website.
Reporting an abandoned vehicle
We will only deem a vehicle to be abandoned if it meets certain criteria.
Indicators that a vehicle has been abandoned are where the vehicle:
- is in a poor state of repair
- has not moved for a considerable length of time
- is being vandalised
- is not taxed or has a Statutory Off Road Notification (SORN) declaration
To report a vehicle you believe has been abandoned use our general enquiry form.
Include the vehicle make, model, colour, registration number and location. For vehicles such as caravans and trailers a description of the vehicle would be helpful.
