Recovering vehicle from Police impound
My brother in law was stopped by the Police for driving with no licence, thus invalidating his insurance.
The vehicle was taken to a Police impound however no details have yet been given on the procedure for recovering the vehicle from the impound. He has been informed over the phone that a valid driving licence is required and proof of insurance (which is obviously a problem!). We also know that the vehicle can be insured in someone elses name so that they (with a driving licence of course!) can go and pick the vehicle up.
I've tried looking on t'interweb to see if its possible to recover the vehicle on the back of a low-loader but have found no information. The vehicle would be transported directly to a private yard.
Has anyone had any experience of this and could offer some advice? Please? (especially the boys in blue amongst us!)
