Do I have any legal obligations for my car after it’s collected?

When your vehicle is being collected we ask you to present your registration document (V5C) and ask the collection agency to sign and complete section 9, the registered owner of the vehicle also needs to sign section 9. The registered owner must then send section 9 only to the DVLA. This will notify them that you are no longer the owner of the vehicle and therefore have no legal obligations to the vehicle once it has been collected. If the car has gone through to be recycled, then you will receive a Certificate of Destruction from the collection agency.
