A certificate of destruction is an important piece of legal documentation that states that your vehicle has been destructed in a lawful and environmentally friendly manner. Without proper de-registration of your vehicle you could be fined under new laws.
It is important that you receive this documentation as you are still legally responsible for the vehicle. If you don't receive a certificate of destruction from us within 14 days please let us know.
