Selling Your Car For Scrap in Portadown – FAQ

2. Can I scrap my car without registration document?

Although you don’t need your V5C to scrap the car legally, if you forget to inform the DVLA in writing you might remain as the registered keeper of the car, making you liable for any issues that arise.

3. How do you check if a car has been scrapped?

The easiest way to inspect whether the vehicle you hope to buy has previously been scrapped is to buy an HPI car check online, which includes a car scrap check. Using data from the DVLA, this will check through its history to see whether it has once been recorded as scrapped.

4. Can you change ownership of a vehicle online without logbook?

You’ll still need your logbook to transfer ownership of your car when using the online service as it requires you to input the 11-digit Document Reference Number printed on the V5C as part of the process.

5. Is a log book proof of ownership?

Vehicle log books act as proof of ownership and are used by the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Authority (DVLA) to ensure a nationwide record is kept of every vehicle and it’s registered keeper. A vehicle’s V5C logbook must be filled in by both the seller and the buyer every time that vehicle changes hands.

6. What proves you own a car?

To prove that you own the car, you’ll need some sort of receipt or invoice from when you bought it. Even if you buy the car privately, make sure the seller gives you some sort of written agreement detailing the date of sale, the amount you paid and the method of payment.
