If you’re scrapping your car, it’s important that you inform the DVLA. You might be liable for future charges relating to the vehicle if you don’t. The easiest way to do this is by completing and returning section 9 (or section 4 on post-April 2019 documents) of the V5C log book form. You can get rid of your unwanted car in other ways too, like selling it or breaking it for parts. But scrapping it is the only way to make sure it can never be used on the road again. When a car is scrapped, all its parts are recycled and the metal is melted down and reused.

Just leave it to us and when we contact you to confirm your details, please let us know if there are any obstructions or height restrictions that could make it difficult to recover.

When you scrap your car, you will need to provide some documentation to the scrap metal dealer. This is in line with the Scrap Metal Dealers Act 2013, which requires dealers to verify the name and address of anyone selling scrap metal. The specific documents you will need to provide are your car keys, registration document (V5C), and locking wheel nut key if your car has alloy wheels. You may also have other paperwork for the car that you should provide at the time of collection. By scrapping your car with a licensed dealer, you can be sure that all legal requirements will be met and that you will receive the best possible price for your scrap metal.
