Answer

Yes, as long as it is not inside a garage or building that is either locked or unlocked. The other exception is the repossession agency may not commit a breach of peace as defined by state law while recovering a vehicle..

Also the repossession agency is not allowed to cause property damage in order to take possession of the vehicle,such as if the vehicle has a chain/cable wrapped around the rear axle secured to a pole with a padlock..They can not cut the chain/cable or the padlock because doing so is malicious destruction of property....

The owner of the property where the vehicle is located can remove it/ have it removed, in most cases without the necessity of notifying the owner of the vehicle.

If the vehicle is trespassing and you are inside it then you are trespassing.

Unlicensed drivers cannot operate a vehicle on private property. The insurance for the vehicle will not allow unlicensed drivers. Most states require every vehicle in operation to be insured.
