Disposing of your vehicle
Disposing of your vehicle at the end of its life is no longer just a matter of dropping it off at your nearest scrap yard or just letting somebody take it away.
The Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) must be properly notified of its disposal.
DVLA now has the authority to carry out enforcement action against the registered keeper directly from information held on the vehicle licence records. Under this new system if you are still listed as the registered keeper with DVLA all offenses involving the vehicle will be your responsibility.
There is a simple way to make sure this does not happen to you.
Just deliver your End of Life Vehicle to an Authorised Treatment Facility (ATF) permitted by the Environment Agencies.
The ATF receiving your vehicle will issue you with a Certificate of Destruction which ends your responisibility for the vehicle from its date of issue. FMS Recovery is required to be registered as an ATF and offer this service.
Disposing of your vehicle to FMS Recovery means that you can get your Certficate of Destruction but also that your vehicle will be de-polluted and recycled to the highest possible standard. Protecting you and protecting the environment.
