When it comes to selling a car, for the best possible price your car would have a valid MOT certificate and some remaining road tax. We understand that you may wish to sell your
car very quickly and that you might not have the time or money to arrange a suitable MOT test or even update your road tax disc. This is not an issue for us.
We will still buy your car even if it has no MOT certificate. We can also buy cars with no road tax.
I want to sell my car without MOT
Has your MOT just recently expired or have you taken your car for an MOT and it failed? For us neither is a problem. As we buy any car, we will also buy your car without a valid MOT certificate.
However, please be aware this can affect your car's value. When filling in our free car valuation forms, to receive an accurate value, please tell us your car has no MOT on the appropriate
MOT drop down selection box.
Have you lost or damaged your MOT certificate?
If you have lost your MOT certificate and you would like to sell your car to us, it would be worth you replacing the document. You can get a duplicate test certificate from any MOT test station.
You will need to provide the registration mark and the original MOT test number, or V5C document reference number. This can be found on the V5C registration certificate.
The maximum fee for a duplicate certificate for a car is £10.
I want to sell my car with no road tax
To use or to keep your vehicle on a public road then it must have an up to date tax disc on display in the vehicles windscreen. Failure to comply with this legality can result
in your vehicle being confiscated by authorities.
If the vehicle is in storage then the vehicle needs to be declared as SORN (Statutory Off Road Notification) by the DVLA.
Sell my car with expired road tax
If your vehicle is SORN or has no road tax license then we will still buy your car. As the vehicle cannot be driven on a public road then you can either arrange to deliver
the vehicle to one of our many branches throughout the UK (please telephone our call centre to arrange 0843 6450000).
Regardless of the tax situation on your vehicle, you are still able to sell your car to us.
If you only have several months of road tax remaining then we may offer the value of your tax back to you as part of the overall deal.
