(1) In this section
notice to surrender means —
surrender notice given under section 79BA; or
surrender substitute vehicle notice given under section 79BCA; or
surrender alternative vehicle notice given under section 79BCD.
(2) If a senior police
officer is satisfied that —
notice to surrender has been given to a person in respect of a vehicle; and
vehicle has not been impounded under section 79BB, 79BCB or 79BCE, as the case
may be; and
if the vehicle were so impounded, the vehicle would be a
vehicle that could, under section 79D, be released before the impounding
period ends; or
the vehicle’s condition is such that it no longer
functions as a vehicle and a licence could not be granted for it under the
Road Traffic (Vehicles) Act 2012 Part 2,
the officer may cancel
the notice to surrender.
(3) As soon as is
practicable after a senior police officer cancels a notice to surrender, the
officer must give a written notice of the cancellation to the person to whom
the notice to surrender was given.
