How do I scrap my car? A step by step guide

If your long-serving form of motor transport has reached the end of its useful service life and you have been wondering, “How do I scrap my car?” read on. Here, we explain the steps involved in scrapping cars, vans and other private motor vehicles.

Step 1: Find a Scrap Car Dealer that is ATF Registered

As most scrap companies store personal information for three years or more, you may want to choose a business you can trust. On the technical side, good scrap facilities recycle vehicles and dispose of hazardous materials (such as tyres or oil) correctly. Look for an officially approved company that is an authorised treatment facility (ATF).

Step 2: Getting the Paperwork Right

Ensuring you receive proper documentation of the scrap transaction helps to prevent difficulties later. When scrapping the vehicle, transfer legal ownership to the salvage merchant or scrap yard to avoid a subsequent automatic fine of £80 for not paying the vehicle road tax when due, as well as parking and speeding penalties.

Step 3: V5C Information

The V5C (registration document or logbook) gives the vehicle’s history. To transfer ownership, complete the tear-off form and mail it to the DVLA (Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency). If the vehicle is to be destroyed, ensure that the scrap yard raises a CoD (Certificate of Destruction). Proper completion of these formalities avoids fines of up to £1,000.

Notably, only authorised treatment facilities (ATFs) may issue CoDs. It will be necessary to supply the registration certificate; you complete the section entitled ‘Notification of Sale or Transfer) and send the stub to the DVLA

Step 4: Service History

When handing over the vehicle, spares dealers may be interested in receiving details of the service history – ideally, the stamped service book or folder. If possible, pass on any invoices and receipts for maintenance work completed.

If you wish to keep the vehicle registration number, it is necessary to apply separately via the gov.uk website.

Be Aware

Paying for scrap cars in cash is illegal.

Beware of unexpected traders and unscrupulous scrap dealers who turn up or haggle on the doorstep. If you do not have the vehicle registration document, ignore possible suggestions that the scrap price offered has to be reduced by a further £25 due to a supposed extra DVLA fee. When scrapping vehicles, DVLA will accept simple written confirmation.

If in doubt or if you do not receive any communication from DVLA within four weeks, motoring experts advise contacting the agency either online or via their telephone helpdesk service.

Safety and Legal Considerations

Contact your motor insurer to cancel any motor insurance policies for the scrapped vehicle. On receiving the supporting documentation, your insurance company should offer a credit for a new policy or issue a refund.

Since 2013, it has been necessary to provide proof of identity (such as a photo driving license) and proof of address (from a utility bill, etc.) when scrapping a car. Thanks to this verification and enhanced traceability, it is no longer essential to provide the registration document if you have mislaid it.
