Towing of unregistered/inoperable vehicles


The traffic monitoring staff will try to locate the owner on the basis of the chassis number or the license plate number.

When you collect your car, please inform the towing company if you wish to receive a cost assessment notice. The procedure will then be forwarded to Unit 30.

If no one comes to collect the vehicle after 1 month, the vehicles will be disposed of or auctioned off.

You will need proof of ownership to collect your vehicle from our contractual partner. This can be, for example

  • Registration certificate part 2 (formerly vehicle registration document)

An existing duplicate key is not sufficient.

You should also have the following documents with you:

  • Identity card or passport
  • Driver's license
  • Purchase contract (if available)
