Motor salvage operators

Any motor salvage operator will need to hold a scrap metal dealers licence. The Scrap Metal Dealers Act 2013 has repealed the part of the Vehicle (Crime) Act 2001 which required motor salvage operators to obtain a licence, therefore, as a result, there is no longer any registration as a vehicle salvage operator.

Information on the new act, and an application form for a scrap metal licence can be found on our Scrap Metal Dealers Act 2013 page.
