DVLA

“Should I contact the DVLA when I have sold my car?”

When you sell a vehicle the DVLA (Driver Vehicle Licensing Agency) MUST be informed.

You the seller and owner are responsible for this procedure.

We have many years’ experience dealing with DVLA enquiries and can assist with most problems.

To sell your car to us simply remove the yellow part of your registration document V5C and complete the section as shown below:

DVLA Registraion form

Please leave the remainder of the V5C in the front glove box of the vehicle at the time of collection

Typical DVLA problems

LOST VEHICLE DOCUMENTS

We can still buy your vehicle without documents and we will inform the DVLA that we are the new keeper; this will ensure you do not receive any notifications or penalty charges.

LOST MOT CERTIFICATE

We can buy your vehicle without the MOT certificate

CERTIFICATES OF DESTRUCTION (C.O.D.)

Should your vehicle be a CAT B write off or it is agreed by discussion that your vehicle is beyond repair or cannot be used on the road for any other reason we can issue you with a certificate of destruction.  This document proves your vehicle has been depolluted and handled correctly.  A scrapped marker will be set with the DVLA and under no circumstances can your vehicle be reregistered.

VEHICLE HAS BEEN SEIZED OR IMPOUNDED UNDER A ROAD TRAFFIC ACT OFFENCE

We can still purchase and collect your vehicle from a specified address.  We can even pay outstanding tow in and storage fees against it.
