Frequently asked questions
What’s the best place to scrap car?
The best option for scrapping your car is to use an Authorised Treatment Facility (ATF). Authorised treatment facilities can issue a certificate of destruction and can advise the DVLA that your car has been destroyed.
Obtaining a certificate of destruction
You will receive a certificate of destruction (COD) immediately when you recycle your vehicle with an ATF. Keep the certificate in a safe place to prove the vehicle was scrapped.
How and when do I inform DVLA?
DVLA will send you a letter within four weeks, this letter will confirm that they know the vehicle has been scrapped and that you’re no longer responsible for it.
If you do not receive a letter, Call DVLA on 0300 790 6802.
If you broke up the vehicle yourself, you must continue to tax it or declare it off-road (SORN). A SORN must be renewed each year until the vehicle has been taken to an Authorised Treatment Facility (ATF), or no longer own it.
Is your car not worth fixing?
When repairs cost more than buying a new car, breaks down or fails MOT, you should consider recycling your older vehicle. If your older car is beyond repair you can take your vehicle to an ATF and be paid scrap value for it. Repairing an old car can get expensive and it’s more financially viable to scrap your car and buy a new one.

What documents do I need?
The documents needed to sell your car at an Authorised Treatment facility include:
- V5C Logbook
- Owner manual and book pack
- Part or full-service history
- A Certificate of Destruction (COD)
When an ATF agrees to scrap your vehicle, they will issue you a Certificate of Destruction (CoD). A Certificate of Destruction is a legal requirement to prove your vehicle has been scrapped by an Authorised Treatment Facility.
Do I need to pay to scrap a car?
No scrapping your car is usually free at an Authorised Treatment Facility (ATF). An Authorised Treatment Facility is also known as a scrapyard or breakers yard and specialises in end of life vehicle recycling. We offer a price match guarantee here at Reclamet and free scrap car collection for Thanet and the surrounding area of Kent. Cars and vehicles can only be scrapped at ATF’s as they hold a special licence issued by the Environmental Agency – DVLA.
What identification do I need?
Identification, which can either be:
- Great Britain or Northern Ireland photocard driving valid licence
- U.K. or EEA valid passport and utility bill (not mobile phone), bank or building society statement, credit or debit card statement, council tax letter, documents of no more than 3 months old.

When should you scrap a car?
People usually scrap their cars if they fail an MOT, break down, need expensive repairs, or cannot find a buyer.
If your car isn’t road safe you could end up with a fine or points on your driving licence. So if your car has seen better days, then contact Reclamet today.
Scrapping your car will ensure it’s properly recycled without damaging the environment.
