What needs to be done is registered owner of the vehicle needs to the contacted for their insurance.

The police will be able to proceed the details to you for the registered owner of the vehicle.

If the registered owner refuses to corporate you will need to raise a civil action in the Magistrates Court to pursue damages for the cost of repair of the vehicle.

It is important that written quotes are obtained in relation to the cost of repairs for any action that is either brought against the vehicle insurance or any matters raised in the court.
