Please note: if you submitted a road traffic incident report on this site, you'll be able to download a copy of your report once you've submitted it. That report is a collision report. You can then send that report to your insurance company or solicitor.
If you're a solicitor or an insurance agent, you can apply, on behalf of your client, 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's been investigated.

Fill in the 'Request a collision report form' below and send it to the RTC Process Team at the address on the form.
Please make sure you add all the relevant details, otherwise we'll have to charge you an administration fee.

Please note, collision accident reports can only be released once the case has been closed.
If you have any queries, please email the RTC Process Team.
