Report a road traffic offence with evidence
How to report
You must complete the form in one go. You cannot save your progress and come back later. You have up to two hours to complete each page of the form before it times out.
What we’ll ask you for
Please have the following details available if possible:
date and time of the incident
details of the other person or people involved
registration and make of their vehicle
contact details of any witnesses to the incident
footage or photos of the offence taking place
An independent witness must be someone who witnessed the incident but who is wholly unrelated to the incident and to anyone involved.
They can't be a driver or rider involved in the incident.
They can't be a passenger involved in the incident, unless they were in a taxi.
They can't be known to the drivers or riders involved in the incident, such as a family member or friend.
Guidance on evidence
To be accepted in court evidence must:
include one minute before and one minute after the incident in any video footage
be in your possession - both the original and a copy
not have been edited or manipulated in any way
not have been shared on the internet (including social media)
Video footage may be shared with the other involved parties.
It's more likely we'll be able to take action if the registration number of the offending vehicle(s) is visible in the evidence.
Please note: if your evidence shows you committing an offence, as well as the offender, you may also be prosecuted.
What will happen to your online report
Your report will be reviewed and we'll assess whether we can take any action.
If we haven’t contacted you within six weeks, it’s because we’re not able to take your report further.
