Certificate of Destruction (CoD) and Notification of Destruction (NoD) service

This service provides a Certificate of Destruction (CoD) and Notification of Destruction (NoD) for an authorised treatment facility (ATF).

The Certificate of Destruction (CoD) and Notification of Destruction (NoD) service allows an authorised treatment facility (ATF) to notify DVLA when vehicles are depolluted or destroyed and allows them to:

  • issue a CoD, notifying DVLA to permanently close the vehicle record for that vehicle as it has been depolluted or destroyed
  • enable the ATF to issue a physical CoD certificate, either to the keeper of the vehicle or to the person who presented the vehicle for destruction
  • inform DVLA of a NoD for vehicles that fall outside the CoD process but have been depolluted or destroyed

Only a person or company who holds a valid ATF Permit may access the CoD and NoD online service.

Before continuing, you should have read the terms and conditions.
