How to check if a car has been scrapped?

It is important to get a car scrap check before you buy a used car. This helps ensure that the vehicle, van or motorbike you’re thinking of buying hasn’t previously been scrapped. Simply enter your registration for a comprehensive history check which includes a scrap check.

Using data from the DVLA, this will check through its history to see whether it has once been recorded as scrapped.

What should I do to avoid buying a scrapped car?

Always ask for paperwork when purchasing a used car to avoid being scammed into buying a scrapped car. We strongly advise using our reg checker to discover any hidden history that the seller might not inform you of in order to get a sale.

What happens after I’ve scrapped my car?

You’ll need to inform the DVLA that your vehicle has been scrapped. After taking your vehicle to a scrapyard, you’ll need to keep the yellow transfer section of your V5C and give the rest of the document to the breaker.
