Cars for Sale on the HighwaySelling a vehicle

The sale of motor vehicles from the public highway is an improper use of the highway entitling Pendle Council, Lancashire County Council or Lancashire Constabulary to take action to have the vehicles removed or the current owners prosecuted.

All streets within Pendle are designated as consent streets, which means it is an offence to sell anything from a street without a street trading licence.

Thinking of buying a vehicle?

If you're buying a used car privately, you should be doing the deal at the address shown on the V5/C Vehicle Registration Certificate (external link).

When you buy a car from a trader, you have legal rights under the Sale of Goods Act 1979 (external link), as amended by the Sale and Supply of Goods Act 1994 (external link) and the Sale and Supply of Goods to Consumers Regulations 2002 (external link).

  • If you think a trader is pretending to be a private seller, contact Lancashire County Council Trading Standards on 0845 600 1352 or 01772 533569 or complete their online complaint form.
