Thanks for your question. I am a solicitor in Scotland. I will be helping you today. they can’t take the car way without a court order but you have to get the payment up to date. They will tell you that they can just repo the car. They can’t but you have to pay. I hope that helps. Please leave a positive rating on the star rating system on your screen. That will allow JustAnswer to credit me for helping you today.
