A Certificate of Destruction is a legal authorized document that we receive electronically from the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA), when we leave your car at one of our Authorized Treatment Facilities (ATF). As our customer, you will then receive a copy of this certificate for you to retain as proof that you have scrapped your car with us. By law, every car scrapped by an ATF has to be issued with a Certificate of Destruction.
