If a vehicle is parked on a public road or land and shows signs of being abandoned, we can deal with it, even if it is taxed.
However if the vehicle is in good condition, we cannot remove it unless it has been untaxed for 61 days.
We report untaxed vehicles to the DVLA.
Report an abandoned or untaxed vehicle
