Is it possible to scrap a car without a V5C form. We've searched everywhere but can't find it. Need to scrap it asap as our car insurance runs out at the end of this month

Call DVLA but the rules do state that the vehicle must be MOT'ed to allow transfer, seems bloody stupid though if you're scrapping.

Yes the cost of repair is much higher than the market value of the vehicle so opted to scrap. Plus scrapping gives a little extra money too.

I couldn't agree with you more but I cannot see a way around it, if it helps have a read of the below link, insert copied from there. The only thing that I can think of is that you would hold a destruction certificate which would negate the need for an MOT. Give them a ring.

How to transfer a registration number
Complete a V317 ‘application to transfer or retain a vehicle registration number’. If the number is being transferred to someone else’s vehicle, both registered keepers must complete the application.

You should also include:

the £80 transfer fee (cheque or postal order, payable to DVLA)
the registration certificate or the new keeper supplement with a completed V62 ‘application for a vehicle registration certificate V5C’ for each vehicle
an MOT test certificate (for cars and motorcycles over 3 years old, and heavy goods vehicles over 1 year old) for each vehicle
If the new keeper’s supplement has been stamped by a DVLA local office you’ll need to complete a V62 ‘application for a vehicle registration certificate V5C’ before you can apply.

The pedant in me might argue that they don't specify that the MOT Test Certificate indicates a pass or is even current...
Conditions for retaining a registration number
You can’t retain a registration number starting with ‘Q’ or ‘NIQ’ for Northern Ireland registered vehicles.

To retain the registration number, the vehicle must be:

registered with DVLA
available for inspection
of a type that needs an MOT or heavy goods vehicle (HGV) test certificate
Pre-1960 vehicles need a valid MOT to retain a registration number.

The vehicle should also be taxed, unless:

there’s no break between the date the vehicle runs out and the start of the SORN
the vehicle tax has run out in the last 12 months
