Scrapping your car might seem like a pretty straightforward process, but there are actually a number of steps you have to take before selling your car to an authorised treatment facility (ATF).
One of the most commonly-asked questions is whether or not you have to inform the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) when you make the decision to scrap your car.
The short answer to this question is yes, you have to tell the DVLA when you scrap your car. In fact, you have to tell the DVLA whenever you sell, transfer, buy, or scrap a car.
We know how it feels when you get your first car, we also know how it feels when you have to get rid of it, or any car for that matter. It’s not easy, but even the most reliable of cars eventually reach the end of their useful lives eventually.

We are an Authorised Treatment Facility
One of the first things that you should be looking out for when deciding where to scrap your car is if the dealership is an Authorised Treatment Facility, for a host of reasons. Firstly, they will ensure that your car is scrapped in the most environmentally-friendly way, adhering to all of the rigorous laws as they process your car. This includes providing you with the all-important Certificate of Destruction. Secondly, they will be closely monitored by the Environment Agency to ensure that the very highest standards of hygiene, professionalism and safety are followed. Records of status are very public and extremely easy to access and check, so you should have no trouble in confirming the legitimateness of any dealer.
