I’ve sold my car; do I need to notify the DVLA?
When you sell or dispose of your old car, it’s important that you notify the DVLA straight away. Failing to do so could see you charged expensive fines, be liable for traffic offence penalties carried out in that vehicle and paying tax in arrears.You can notify the DVLA online using their website.
What should I do with my car’s log book when I sell it?
If you have your vehicle’s registration certificate (V5C), you should keep the yellow section (Section 9 / V5C/3) as a reference and provide the rest to CarConverter along with your keys.
I’ve lost my V5 log book, what do I do?
Don’t worry! Providing that you have some form of photo ID, it’s usually possible to scrap your car without a V5 or V5C log book. Make sure you discuss the missing log book with the company you are selling with beforehand and they will advise you on this.Alternatively, you could always apply for a replacement log book on the DVLA website.
