**Summary:**In this article, we define the Weyl transform on a second countable type I locally compact group $G,$ and as an operator on $L^2(G),$ we prove that the Weyl transform is compact when the symbol lies in $L^p(G\times \widehat{G})$ with $1\leqslant p\leqslant 2.$ Further, for the Euclidean motion group and Heisenberg motion group, we prove that the Weyl transform cannot be extended as a bounded operator for the symbol belongs to $L^p(G\times \widehat{G})$ with $p$ between $2$ and $\infty$. To carry out this, we construct positive, square integrable and compactly supported function, on the respective groups, such that the $L^{p'}$ norm of its Fourier transform is infinite, where $p'$ is the conjugate index of $p.$
