Is it legal to place a GPS Tracker in a vehicle

Posted June 4, 2020 by munstergpsuk

Yes and no. In the UK, you can’t place a tracking device in anyone’s car since it’s considered an invasion of privacy.
The person you’re tracking has to give consent, and the car should be owned by you.

That’s true even if Mum and Dad want to track a young driver in order to receive notifications in the event of a collision or incident.

Employees using company cars can be tracked legally, since companies have a duty of care and may want to track vehicles for safety reasons.

In short make sure you have written consent from the driver before installing a car GPS tracker in the UK.

This is not legal advice. Please consult your legal team should you require a tracking device.

Munster GPS, the home of UK GPS tracking technology. We supply both SIM GPS trackers and SIM free GPS trackers. The SIM free trackers are the latest in tracking technology and are fast becoming a favourite due to their plug and play operation and extended battery life up to 3 years.

There are many GPS tracker manufacturers around the world and many more suppliers. Our GPS Trackers have long battery life, built in shock sensors and accurate GPS positioning. They can be used on a person, vehicle or pet. The vehicle trackers when installed reduce your insurance premiums by as much as 40%.
