Warning Cartakeback Certificate of Destruction

If you scrap your car without obtaining an official Certificate of Destruction you could be fined by DVLA, or even worse, if your car ends up being returned to the road by an unscrupulous operator you could face prosecution if it is later used for criminal activity.

When you choose CarTakeBack to recycle your scrap car we will issue you with a DVLA Certificate of Destruction, using our secure online link to the DVLA's vehicle registration database.  We can issue your certificate as soon as your car has arrived on site while you wait, or we can send it to you by e-mail or post to an address of your choice.

If your car is scrapped there is no need to contact DVLA yourself as CarTakeBack does everything for you, giving you complete peace of mind.

Reuse is the purest form of recycling and, on occasion, it may be more environmentally responsible for the operator to work on your car to keep it on the road a while longer instead of scrapping it.  Read more about scrap car recycling »
