What does a DVLA Certificate of Destruction look like?

An official DVLA Certificate of Destruction has:

  • the DVLA logo at the top;
  • 'Certificate of Destruction' written underneath the logo;
  • a unique 12 digit certificate number (Certificate No);
  • the date that the certificate was issued (Date of Issue); and
  • the signature of a representative of the scrap car recycling centre (Issuing Establishment) which accepted your car.
