We'll help with the DVLA paperwork

When it comes to selling your car, CarTakeBack will help you to get the DVLA paperwork right by ensuring that your registration certificate (V5C - the log book) is correctly filled out, to absolve you from any further responsibility for the car. It's important to do this by the book when you sell your car, so that you avoid an £80 fine. Find out more about the official DVLA paperwork.
