Report a vehicle with no MOT

Contact your local police to report a car, van, motorcycle or other vehicle that does not have an MOT.

You can only report a vehicle with no MOT to the police if it’s being used on a road.

You need the vehicle’s:

  • number plate (registration number)
  • make and model
  • colour
  • location

If the vehicle is abandoned the police cannot deal with it. You need to report abandoned vehicles to your local council.

The Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) and the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) cannot take action against a vehicle with no MOT.

What happens next

The police will investigate your report and the driver may get a fine. The maximum fine is £1,000.
