To qualify as a “junk” vehicle, per RCW 46.55.010, a vehicle must meet three of the following conditions:
Must be at least three years old.
Must be extensively damaged.
Must be apparently inoperable.
Must have a “fair market value” equal only to the approximate value of the scrap in it.
If the vehicle meets the above requirements, complete a Junk Vehicle Affidavit Inspection Request Form. You can also contact a law enforcement agency, Non-Emergency Dispatch 425-407-3999 or an authorized junk vehicle inspector, to arrange for the inspection of the vehicle, per RCW 46.55.230. If not, refer to RCW 46.55 concerning abandoned vehicles.
