For insurance claims or civil proceedings, you can apply for a copy of any existing collision reports the police have made or hold, or request an interview with the police officer who dealt with the road traffic collision, as long as it has been investigated.
To do this you need to download and complete the 518 form.
- insurer or solicitor’s name, phone number and email address
- insurer or solicitor’s full address including the postcode (this is where the copy of the report will be sent)
- the date and time of the incident
- the location and postcode of the incident
How long does it take?
If you’re requesting a copy of the report it can take up to 12 weeks from the date that we bank your payment to process your request.
If you’re requesting the details of a third party it can take up to 21 days from the date that we bank your payment to process your request.
Please note, collision accident reports can only be released once the case has been closed.
