Default scrapping a car without a logbook?

this car that i'm givign to beefy to srap/chop up, i can't find the log book for it so i can't send it off to say it's being scraped

neither can i figure out how to declare it sorn as the thing is supposed ot have turned up at my house to give me the number si need to put into the computer

and everytime i call the dvla, some fuckwit on a computer tells me that i must talk to tha automated service

so how do i get it sorted?
or do i just say bollocks to it and wait till the fines come through the door

Not entirely the same thing but i wrote a letter to the DVLA informing them of a change of ownership of a car because i kept recieving fines etc for it not being taxed. Sold it to a "mate" who just fucked around and never registered it or sorted it out, was sick of getting reminders about it. Got a letter of confirmation back and that was it sorted. P.s if you read this "mate" you'll know the car. There's probably an address on the website for this.

I'm doing the same, stripped a Mk4 Fiesta this morning and going to run it up to the scrappies tomorrow. . . . my local scrapyard inform the DVLA of the vehicle being destroyed and you cannot run a car into them without the registration number.

the only stipulation our loacal scrappy has wen weighing in a car is that , if the cars complete i.e rolling with an engine in it then u must produce the v5


however if you removed the same engine and slung it in the boot they dnt need nothing ,


either way dojj i wouldnt worry , you wont be reciving any speeding fines


well not unless they have a camera that spots a sierra floorpan in a mk 3 pmsl !!!!!


any updates on delivery kid ?

beef

If you do write to the DVLA, send it recorded delivery, the amount of letters/V5's that get 'lost' by the dvla or on route to the dvla is unbeleiveable!
