Should I Cancel My Road Tax If I Scrap My Car?

If a Certificate of Destruction is issued, there is no need to cancel your tax as the DVLA has done so.

Although, as Certificates of Destruction aren’t processed instantly, you should cancel your road tax once your vehicle has been collected for scrap.

Once cancelled, you may receive a partial refund on your tax if:

You paid your tax in full.

You have over one month of road tax left on your vehicle.

If you pay your road tax via direct debit, you must ensure your payments have been cancelled through your bank.
