A vehicle release form is a formal requisition letter requesting the release of a vehicle from impoundment. It is mandatory to correctly fill out the vehicle release form and have it authorized by the police department to obtain the release of an impounded vehicle. State laws governing the impoundment and release of vehicles vary, so one must look up a specific state's laws for the most accurate information on vehicle releases.
