Outside Reporting Time Period

Essex Police does not investigate collisions reported in excess of 30 days.

There is no need to complete a report at this time unless it has been established that a vehicle involved in the collision has no insurance, or you have been away and were unable to complete a report within 30 days.

Essex Police will then review our records to see if the collision has been reported separately by the other party/parties involved.

Please be aware it is an offence to fail to report a collision. Any person involved must report the collision as as soon as reasonably practicable and in any case, within 24 hours of the occurrence of the collision.

Warning - by proceeding with a formal collision report you are confirming that the collision meets the criteria listed above.
