Please note: if you submitted a road traffic incident report on this site, you'll be able to download a copy of your report once you've submitted it. That report is a collision report. You can then send that report to your insurance company or solicitor. 

If you're a solicitor or an insurance agent, you can apply, on behalf of your client, for a copy of any existing collision reports the police have made or hold, or request an interview with the police officer who dealt with the road traffic collision, as long as it's been investigated.

Individuals can also apply for collision reports if they're representing themselves in civil proceedings.

Before you apply, you'll need the police reference number. It will be in one of these formats:

  • The unique reference number you got when you reported the incident on our website - the number usually begins with 206, 207 or 209. 
  • A NICHE RMS Occurrence number, which is ten digits long and starts with the year of the incident report.
  • A call log reference number, often called a STORM number, which will start NP-yyyymmdd- and end with a four-digit number.
  • Road traffic collision (RTC) files from February 2016 and older may start with two letters then four digits.

How to apply

Fill in the 'Request a collision report form' below and email it to us.

Please make sure you add all the relevant details, otherwise we'll have to charge you an extra administration fee.

We’ll tell you when we can release the report and then we'll ask you to pay. Please don’t send payment until we ask for it.


Search fee - £31 (non-refundable)
Limited third party details - £30

A full list of other reports and their costs are on the form.

When we've confirmed we have the information, make a cheque payable for the relevant amount to 'Police and Crime Commissioner for Wiltshire' and send it with a copy of your filled-in form to:

Justice Traffic Unit
Swindon Police Station Gablecross
Shriveham Road

How long does it take?

If you're requesting a copy of the collision report, it can take up to 12 weeks from the date we receive your payment.
