Certificate of Destruction when you Scrap a Car

DVLA Certificate of DestructionThe End-of-Life Vehicles Regulations 2003 require that if you want to scrap a car you may only do so at an Authorised Treatment Facility (ATF).

An ATF will issue you a Certificate of Destruction (CoD); this document terminates your responsibility as the registered keeper of the vehicle. Without this certificate you will still be responsible for the vehicle and for payment of a road fund licence.

If your scrap car is a passenger carrying or light goods vehicle up to 3,500kg you will be issued a Certificate of Destruction immediately. You should retain your scrap car's Certificate of Destruction as a duplicate cannot be issued.

To scrap your car safely and simply, give us a call on 0845 894 2968*.

Alternatively text the car make and model to 67777 and we'll call you back.

*0845 number is charged at local call rates.

End of Life Vehicles Regulations

The End of Life Vehicles (ELV) Regulation 2003 aims to reduce the amount of waste from scrap vehicles (cars and vans). It imposed strict environmental standards for Authorised Treatment Facilities, made provision for the free disposal of scrap cars and introduced a system for issuing Certificates of Destruction (CoD).

Further information on disposing of cars for scrap can be found on the Scrapping your Vehicle page of the Direct Gov website.

The Environment Agency website contains details of Authorised Treatment Facilities.
