How to surrender a vehicle
Should you want to surrender a vehicle, please complete the form, giving us permission to dispose of your vehicle and explaining where the vehicle is parked.
We will also need the main part of the V5 registration document (Log Book). If you do not have the registration document, or DVLA tax reminder, a copy of the insurance certificate will be sufficient for proof of ownership.
If none of these are available, proof of address will be required. Please also enclose a key for the drivers door.
These items should be sent or taken to the address shown below and once they have been received, your vehicle should then be removed within 5 days.
However, the Council cannot be held liable for any paperwork that has been sent in the post or any parking issues that may arise during this period.
The vehicle will still remain the owners responsibility until such paperwork has been received by this office.
Copies of forms and Log Book will be sent to you once the vehicle has been destroyed for you to inform the DVLA.
If the vehicle can still be driven, it would greatly assist us if it could be driven into the depot anytime between 8am and 4pm, Monday to Fridays only.Abandoned Vehicles
