    I used an online scrapping system to get rid of my old car.

    They came and picked it up and I took a picture of it on the trailer including the cars number plate and the trucks plate.

    I was given a controlled transfer note and later on a certificate of destruction came through the post.

    I don't think I have had anything official from the DVLA as if yet but it can take upto four weeks.

    I over worry about things and the fact that they have now bounced 2 cheques on me is making me wonder if they are legit.

    I've checked through the environment agency and they seem legit.

    DVLA are permanently engaged which is annoying.

    I want the money I'm owed but I'm more concerned about being liable for the old car and tickets ect.

    Any got any insights.

    Write to the DVLA, they get this sort of thing all the time and seem to be quite lax about it. If anything you will at least have a record should it all go wrong.

    Source: A dealer once failed to send off their part of a V5 for me and I wrote to the DVLA and they transferred the car to my name, no questions asked.
