It’s important to get the DVLA paperwork right when you sell your car, whether your car is ready to recycle, or still has some miles left in it. Choosing CarTakeBack will ensure that everything is done correctly. You’ll want to make sure that you’re doing things properly to avoid an automatic fine from DVLA, and free you from any responsibility for your old car.
When you sell your car with CarTakeBack, you should notify DVLA. You can do this either online or via post using your registration certificate (V5C – the logbook). If you don’t have the registration certificate you can write a letter with the details.
When you notify DVLA, you’ll be sent a letter and an email confirmation (if you gave your email address using the Gov.uk website) confirming you’re no longer the registered keeper of the car, and a refund cheque for any full months left on your vehicle tax, calculated from the date DVLA gets your information – if you pay by Direct Debit, it’ll be cancelled automatically.
If your car is scrapped, you’ll receive an official DVLA Certificate of Destruction from your local CarTakeBack branch, as proof that you’re no longer responsible for the scrap car.
A Certificate of Destruction is an official DVLA document which is issued by a CarTakeBack branch when they recycle your scrap car, using our electronic link to the DVLA’s vehicle registration database. The certificate proves that you’ve disposed of your car correctly and prevents you from being penalised.
Minimal fuss , quote was the best I could find , no conditions, gave a reasonable window to collect . Very pleasant chap came to collect the car . Excellent experience.
I found the service to be very easy, professional and reliable. They collected the vehicle when stared and trued calling first to confirm collection. The guy was very polite and efficient. The money was transfered the same day.
From contacting the company to collection of the vehicle, the service provided was great. Communication was good throughout and Kevin who collected the vehicle was professional, efficient and friendly. An excellent service all round.
Excellent service, easy to use. I got a good quote for my car, once accepted they were in touch to arrange collection. Collection was quick and easy. Within a day I'd received the money and certificate of destruction of my vehicle. Very well organised company.
From the chap on the phone, to the very helpful truck driver who picked up the vehicle, a pleasant experience throughout, unusual for the motor trade some might say..thanks to all involved.
Very quick from start to finish, was contacted quickly after filling in the online form, collection of my car was by a lovely gent, very professional, happy especially for 8:45 in the morning
Amazing service! Quick and easy! However I sold my car to CarTakeBack 1 week and a half ago and have not received confirmation of reporting it to the DVLA. Other than that, amazing service, received the money straight away.
