If the Commissioner is satisfied that each person who has an interest in an impounded vehicle has, in accordance with subsection (4), consented to the Commissioner doing so, the Commissioner, on behalf of those persons, may sell or otherwise dispose of the vehicle.
WA Police can dispose of an impounded vehicle before the scheduled release date if the registered owner completes an 80JA application.
Failure to attach the correct information will result in your application not being processed. A request for further information will be sent to the applicant.
The following is an outline of the type of information required to progress your application.
- Complete the 80JA application form.
- Have your signature witnessed (list available on the last page of your application form).
- Your signature must not be witnessed by a staff member from WA Police (conflict of interest).
- If you require property from within the vehicle please complete a Property Release form.
The storage costs will cease when WA Police receive your completed application form. The driver of the vehicle will be invoiced for any outstanding towage and storage costs associated with the impounding of your vehicle.
ALTHOUGH POLICE OFFICERS AND PUBLIC SERVICE STAFF WORKING FOR WA POLICE ARE ORDINARILY AUTHORISED TO WITNESS A STATUTORY DECLARATION, IT IS WA POLICE POLICY THAT NEITHER POLICE OFFICERS NOR POLICE STAFF WILL WITNESS A STATUTORY DECLARATION FOR APPLICATIONS UNDER SECTION 80JA OF THE ROAD TRAFFIC ACT 1974, REQUESTING THE COMMISSIONER OF POLICE TO SELL A VEHICLE IMPOUNDED WITH CONSENT OF OWNER/S.
