BUYING SCRAP CARS WITHOUT A V5 REGISTRATION DOCUMENT

06/10/2019

We continue to receive queries from members about this issue. So, to be clear, it is NOT necessary to have a V5 registration document present in order to buy and scrap a vehicle (although it maybe preferable). SMDA13 makes no mention of a V5. You should take measures to ensure that you obtain all of the correct and accurate vehicle information, and even if you are given a V5 to verify that it matches the vehicle being presented. It is also a legal requirement to take & keep the required seller identification documents.

SMDA 13 LICENCE RENEWAL REMINDER

06/10/2019

Just a quick reminder that many SMDA13 licences will now be due for renewal. Don't forget that a Basic Disclosure is still required before you can apply for renewal and this can take 14 days to receive. There is a new on-line application for Disclosure Scotland which can be found here: https://www.mygov.scot/disclosure-types/ We've just done one and it's a quick and simple process if you have all the details to hand before you start. The cost of the BD is still £25.
