cars for sale

There can be many reasons for de-registering cars for sale. The most common are those that the cars were completely destroyed in an accident, stolen or that it naturally reached the end of its life. In all these cases, the car must be removed from the vehicle register.

There are two ways to exclude a vehicle from the vehicle register. One is temporary and the law calls it scrapping the vehicle. The second is permanent, called by law the extinction of the vehicle.

It is important to note that the car is automatically removed from the vehicle register also in the event that the compulsory liability has ceased to exist and no new one has been agreed within 14 days of its cessation.

Decommissioning cars for sale

The vehicle may be decommissioned at the request of the owner if the liability for the car has expired or has not been renewed and finally if the car has been stolen from the owner.

If it is an application from the owner, the application must be accompanied by a vehicle registration certificate, registration plates and a technical certificate. The competent authority shall then indicate the scrapping of the vehicle in the technical certificate. During the decommissioning period, which lasts up to 12 months, the owner is obliged to secure the vehicle in such a way that it does not endanger or harm the environment and not to remove essential parts of the decommissioned road vehicle, especially the body with the road vehicle identification number and engine. If the scrapping is longer than 12 months, the owner is obliged to inform the office after the expiry of this period where the car is located and the purpose of its use.

As we have already mentioned above, if the car's compulsory liability has expired, this vehicle is automatically removed from the vehicle register. The owner is then obliged to submit to the Office (within 10 days from the date of entry into force of the decision to decommission a road vehicle) a vehicle registration certificate, its registration plate and submit a technical card in which the Office marks the decommissioning of the vehicle and use.

If the car has been stolen from the owner, he must submit a police theft report, vehicle documents (registration certificate and technical card) as well as registration plates, if they have not been stolen, for the purpose of disposal.

Extinction of the vehicle

The termination of the vehicle was called before 1 January 2015 as the permanent decommissioning of the vehicle. It is a legal act where the owner of the vehicle officially cancels the vehicle or car wreck. The vehicle record is deleted from the motor vehicle register.

In order to settle the extinction of the vehicle, the owner of the vehicle must personally visit the office of the municipality with extended powers and submit an Application for the decommissioning of the road vehicle and the registration of the extinction of the road vehicle there. Dealing with the termination of the vehicle is free and free of charge.

Only after the registration is completed is it possible to cancel the compulsory liability with the insurance company. Of course, a proportion of the insurance will be returned to your account.

What is ecological disposal of a vehicle

As follows from the points mentioned above, the vehicle must be disposed of in an environmentally friendly manner. This means handing the vehicle over to a facility that is responsible for collecting car wrecks. Here, the owner will receive a document on ecological disposal - the so-called Confirmation of acceptance of car wreck into the car wreck collection facility. It is therefore not possible to keep the vehicle for so-called spare parts. The vehicle must always be disposed of in an environmentally friendly manner, otherwise it cannot be permanently removed from the register.
