Frequently asked questions

Got a question about the scrapping process? No problem! We’ve covered some of our most common queries here.

No problem. As long as you give us adequate notice we should be able to cancel your collection and avoid anyone being charged for wasted journeys.

An ELV is an ‘End of Life Vehicle’ – the official name given to a car that is no longer suitable for use on the road. ELVs are all scrapped at government authorised treatment facilities.

Yes we do. Commercial vehicles, agricultural machinery, and even HGVs can usually be processed at our partner sites.

An authorised treatment facility (ATF for short) is the name given to a scrap yard that has proved it follows the strict rules surrounding the handling of scrap metals and waste materials produced when you dismantle a vehicle. ATFs are the only type of scrap yard that can officially carry out the DVLA scrapping process.

Yes. Your Certificate of Destruction (COD) will actually be issued by the DVLA when the scrap yard you’re dealing with notifies them that the car has been dismantled. When the scrap yard receives this certificate, they are required to send a copy on to you.

Yes, you can. You’ll need to retain your certificate with the DVLA using their online service. When this is done, your number plate will be held until you’re ready to put it on another vehicle.
