My car was towed. How do I get it released? My car was towed. How do I get it released? <p>​While there are many reasons that a vehicle may be towed by the CHP, all will fall into one of two categories: "<strong>Stored</strong>" or "<strong>Impounded</strong>": </p><p><br><strong>Stored Vehicles </strong></p><p dir="ltr" style="text-align:left;">Vehicles stored by the CHP can be retrieved directly from the tow company by the registered owner or his/her agent. Some examples of "stored" vehicles include:</p><ul dir="ltr" style="text-align:left;"><li>Vehicle involved in a traffic collision, and cannot be driven from the scene.</li><li>Vehicle left parked on a freeway in excess of four hours.</li><li>Vehicle left parked blocking a lane or creating a traffic hazard.</li></ul><p><br><strong>Impounded Vehicles</strong><br>Vehicles impounded by the CHP require a release from the office that caused it to be impounded. Tow companies will not release the vehicle unless they are directed to by the CHP. Common examples of "impounded" vehicles include:</p><ul><li>Vehicles towed because the driver did not have a valid Driver License.</li><li>Vehicles towed as part of an investigation where further examination is necessary.</li><li>Vehicles without valid paid registration.</li></ul><p><br>If you are unsure of why your vehicle was towed or where it was towed to, please contact the office that caused your vehicle to be towed for more information.</p>
