Simply contact the police dept. that arrested you.They will tell you who towed the vehicle. Depending on your local laws you may not be able to get your vehicle back.It could be seized and auctioned by your local goverment. Some states offer a free service online to search for your vehicle. Check out: Not sure what state you are in but I'd bet there is something. Also like the first user stated, contact the police that arrested you.

If you are not licensed and are caught driving, in most cases you will be arrested and the car will be impounded. While officers sometimes have discretion to release the vehicle to another licensed driver or to write you a citation instead of making an arrest, this isn't always so, or they may opt not to use their discretion. It is certainly legal for the car to be impounded even if a licensed driver is available.
