This petition was submitted during the 2015–2017 Conservative government
Petition Increase verification to decrease the fraud in scrapping a stolen vehicle.
Vehicles presented for scrapping by a thief can currently disappear if no V5 is presented on arrival at the scrapyard.
There is no electronic information or cross checking link between DVLA and police forces in the UK.
Remove the facility of cashing the cheque to the thief by the scrapyard.
This follows an incident with a rare vehicle which after being stolen, disappeared, was effectively crushed, and all that happened before any checks could be made.
