What does a DVLA Certificate of Destruction look like?

An official DVLA Certificate of Destruction has:

  • the DVLA logo at the top;

  • 'Certificate of Destruction' written underneath the logo;

  • a unique 12 digit certificate number (Certificate No);

  • the date that the certificate was issued (Date of Issue); and

  • the signature of a representative of the CarTakeBack branch (Issuing Establishment) which accepted your car.

You should sign the certificate within the 'Holder/Owner' section, as soon as you receive it.
