Recovering your vehicle if its uninsured or untaxed

Share by emailShare by email

If you are trying to reclaim your vehicle following its seizure for being used without insurance and/or an unlicensed driver please note the following;

We now offer two alternatives;

You can email all your documents to section165@nottinghamshire.pnn.police.uk where they will be validated and if in order, you will be issued with a release notice allowing you to collect your vehicle.

If you prefer a face to face production please arrange to visit, Radford Rd Police Station, Central Police Station, Carlton Fire Station, Mansfield Police Station Worksop Police Station or Newark Police Station

We will require details of your driving license along with proof of ownership (V5C registration document ideally but if not a verifiable form of receipt) and your certificate of insurance (not the schedule). All photographs must be clear and show the full document. Any that do not comply will be rejected and may result in a delay which may add extra storage charges to your release fees.

Please note as part of the release procedure, if your insurance is a new policy, we will speak with the Motor Insurers Bureau to establish if you disclosed the seizure of the vehicle and a pending prosecution – if you have not it is highly likely the insurance company will cancel the policy with immediate effect. 

Please do not use the e-mail service then present yourself at a Front Counter unless you are requested to. This may confuse and delay your production.
