Why would a vehicle be seized?
The police are allowed to seize and impound your vehicle if they believe the vehicle is being used in a manner that ’causes alarm, harassment or distress.’ In addition, police may seize your vehicle if the driver has the incorrect license or insurance (or doesn’t have insurance or a valid license). In other words, if a drive is guilty of any form of dangerous or potentially careless driving or doesn’t have all the paperwork, the police have the right to seize and impound the vehicle.
What happens to seized vehicles?
A seized car will be impounded and the owner then typically has 14 days to reclaim the vehicle. In order to do so, the owner will have to present proof that they have a valid insurance policy that covered impounded vehicles. If you haven’t contacted the police within 14 days then they’re entitled to assume you will not be collecting the vehicle and dispose of the vehicle. In some circumstances (and providing you make contact beforehand) you may be able to arrange for the vehicle to be kept impounded for collection later than the 14 days at the discretion of the impound and in exceptional circumstances.
