Can I keep my private number plate when I scrap my car?

What is a COD or Certificate of Destruction?
A Certificate of Destruction (COD) is a document confirming your car has been disposed of. The certificate is created by the DVLA and sent to the scrap yard that dismantles a vehicle. If you require a COD for your car for insurance or other purposes it is important to request this at time of booking as, even though your car has reached the end of it’s life with you, some of our specialist salvage partners may repurpose your old car via repairing or transplanting it and put it back on the road.

Can I scrap my car without a V5C?

Do I need to fill any documents in when scrapping?
It’s your legal responsibility to let the DVLA know you’re selling your car for scrap. The easiest way to do this is by using Section 9 of the V5C log book document (or section 4 on V5Cs issued after April 2019) – which your collection driver will be happy to help with.
What do I do with the V5C log book?
You should use the registration document to let the DVLA know you’ve sold your car to a dismantler. You can do this by completing and returning section 9 of the form – or, on V5Cs issued after April 2019; section 4.
Will you haggle on collection?
No, absolutely not. As long as the car has been accurately described when we provided a quote, the price you’ve been offered is the price you’ll be paid – guaranteed.
How do I get paid?
You’ll be paid by bank transfer (BACS or FPS) transfer direct to your account.
