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.

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.
