Customer Question

My car registration/tags were expired. I was pulled over, given a citation, and the car was impounded. There is a hold on renewing the tags due to tax debt which will take a few weeks to clear up. Can I have the car towed from impound to my home while I straighten this out?

Hi - my name is ***** ***** I'll be glad to assist.

Generally, it is not possible to have the vehicle released from impound until/unless all holds or liens have been cleared. You certainly can ask the impound about this, but the answer isn't likely going to be the one you want to hear.
