How to scrap your car legally

How to notify the DVLA your car has been scrapped.

The easiest way is if you still have the V5 (log book) when you scrap your car is to go to

Its really simple, all you need is the car registration, the 11 digit number off your v5 (log book) and the companys name and address you sold the vehicle to.

If you dont notify the dvla they could think its still on the road and you could end up with a road tax reminder, fine for not paying road tax and even worse bayliffs at your door.

Scrap cars Liverpool will do it for you so you have nothing to worry about and you will get an email from the dvla to notify you of it as seen in the above photo.
