Is it necessary for me to notify the DVLA when I scrap my car?
Yes, you must notify the DVLA when you scrap your automobile, or you may be held accountable for any subsequent charges. Section 9 (or section 4 on post-April 2019 documents) of the V5C logbook form is the quickest and easiest way to notify the DVLA.
Simply complete section 9 of the V5C logbook form and give it to the person who’s scrapping your car. They’ll send the form to DVLA by post or you can send it online. If you lose your V5C document, you should contact DVLA with your name, address, vehicle registration number and new date of birth.
What is the Importance of a DVLA’s V5C log book?
The DVLA’s V5C log book helps you prove to anyone who needs to check your driving record that the car is no longer yours. It contains information on the vehicle and the registered keeper. Section 10 of the V5C log book explains why you should keep it in a safe place. You’ll need to return your V5C when you apply for a new log book and inform the DVLA that you’ve scrapped your car, or when you sell it.
What is the Consequence of not Filling the DVLA’s V5C log book?
You will be required to inform the DVLA if you scrap your vehicle, as there may be outstanding tax or duty to pay on the vehicle. If you do not declare your vehicle in the ‘Offer for Sale’ section of the V5C log book, you could face a fine of up to £1,000 with further penalties potentially levied on top of that.
What happens if i am Scrapping a car registered between 1982 and September 2017?
If you are scrapping a car registered between 1982 and September 2017, you will need to fill in section 9 of the V5C log book. This will be returned with a new V5C, which you should attach to your old log book and keep in a safe place as proof of when your car was scrapped.
What are the necessary Details Required when filling the DVLA’s V5C log book?
When you scrap your car, you must inform the DVLA. This is done by writing to DVLA, Swansea, SA99 1AD, quoting the “Ref. no.” and “Chassis no.” of your vehicle’s V5C registration certificate. If the vehicle has been sold or given away before it has been scrapped, you must include the new keeper’s name and address (as shown on the new keeper’s V5C registration certificate) with your letter.
