Additonal Information

Car owners are able to have their vehicle scrapped without charge under a new government scheme which came into force on January 2007. If a vehicle is more than 30 miles from the nearest facility in the manufacturer's network it will be eligible for collection by either of the two service providers free of charge.

In accordance with the End of Life Vehicle Regulations 2005, vehicles registered after July 1st 2002, which are complete and do not contain additonal waste will quailify for free-take-back when delivered to a vehicle manufacturer approved authorised treatment facility.

A complete vehicle is one which contains its essential components, in particular, but not limited to, the engine, coachwork, transmission, catalytic converter (if fitted) and wheels.

Authorised Treatment Facilities (or ATF's) are sites that have been licensed by SEPA, to de-pollute end of life vehicles as per the standards set out in the ELV Directive. Only these sites are permitted to issue last owners with a DVLA Certificate of Destruction. A Certificate of Destruction (COD) is issued by the DVLA to prove that a vehicle has been scrapped in a lawful and environmentally sound manner and will enable deregistration of the vehicle from the DVLA database. Without this certificate last owners may be subject to fines under new continued licensing regulations.

Motor manufacturers are responsible for providing last owners of end of life vehicles with an accessible free-take-back network for qualifing vehicles. The regulations apply to end of life vehicles, which are in class M1, N1, and three wheeled vehicles, i.e. passenger vehicles with 9 seats or less with a revenue weight of less than 3,500kg and 3-wheeled vehicles. Motorbikes (including motorbike-based tricycles) and passenger vehicles with revenue weight over 3,500kg or those that have more than 9 seats are not covered by the regulations.
