> The importance of following the correct DVLA procedures when passing ownership of a registered vehicle.

As the Registered Owner of a motor vehicle, you can be held Responsible for any damage that vehicle may cause or be involved in causing, and any fines levied against that vehicle – even if you were not in fact present at the time of the incident.

Therefore, you can see the importance of following the correct procedures on passing your vehicle to any 3rd party. Some less scrupulous vehicle disposal companies will not advise or assist you in following the correct DVLA procedures for passing a vehicle to another holder. But at 1 Scrap Car we ensure that we advise all clients on the correct procedures and complete the correct paperwork prior to completing any transaction.

> The correct steps to follow :

- You must notify the DVLA immediately using the specified section of the registration document or certificate.

- Alternatively you can write to the DVLA, Swansea, SA99 1AR to inform them that you no longer have the vehicle

- It is also advised by the DVLA that you should also keep a separate note of the buyer’s name and address details.

Here is a quote from the DVLA website for your information :

“You must notify the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) immediately of the exact date of sale or transfer of your vehicle using the registration document or certificate. You and the buyer should follow the procedures correctly or you will remain liable for the vehicle until DVLA records have been updated.”
