Get a price to sell your MOT failure

Whether your car has failed its MOT test or it’s just too expensive to repair, get a free, no obligation car valuation with CarTakeBack.

Selling your car without an MOT is easy. Get started by seeing how much your car is worth. We simply need your registration and postcode. When you get a quote, you may need to answer a few questions about the condition of your car. If you’ve given us accurate info, you’ll get an accurate price. There’s no chipping for things like scratches to the bodywork, or missing trim.

We’ll find you the best price in your area and show you what your MOT failure car is worth instantly. Plus, we’ll save your quote for seven days.

Free car collection

Some car buying companies require you to drop your car off, which is very difficult when your car has no MOT! However, we offer free car collection, making it really easy to get your MOT failure.

Your car can be collected from anywhere in the UK. Once you’ve accepted the quote, your local CarTakeBack branch will contact you and arrange a convenient time and place to suit you. We can collect from your home, work, or even the garage.

Official DVLA paperwork sorted

We’ll help sort all the DVLA paperwork when you sell your MOT failure with us. Your CarTakeBack branch will help you to accurately inform the DVLA using the registration certificate (V5C- log book).

It’s important to get the legal paperwork right and ensure you’re free of any responsibility to your old car, avoiding any fines. Choosing CarTakeBack means you’re safe in the knowledge that everything will be done correctly.

“I came across the website due to scrapping my car. I put car details in and got a quote for the car and I accepted. I also selected to have it collected due to no MOT for the car. I selected the date that suited me and that’s it. Within 30 mins off accepting, I had someone call from CarTakeBack to double check things through. All in all I am very happy with the customer service you guys have provided.”
