Explanatory Notes

Matrix prices revised from proposed 2011 regulations to take account of inflationary increases since these figures were originally calculated in 2008.

Significant damage is deemed to mean the vehicle being recovered cannot free wheel, or there is some problem with the gearing system, braking system or some other impediment to complicate the recovery of the vehicle. Significant damage does not include any other damage to the vehicle that does not impede the vehicle being recovered in the same way as a vehicle with no damage.
