    Is cash for Scrap car ever Legal? 24th Mar 17 at 12:08 PM
    I've called a firm who are listed as authorised to take my car for scrap. They will give me a receipt on the day and send on the certificate for the DVLA once it's scrapped.
    They say because it still has an MOT they can pay me cash. Is this legal?

    Does it make any difference to you if they scrap it or sell it on?
    Presumably if you listed it at scrap value and they came to buy it without identifying themselves as a scrap yard then you'd be happy?

    As mentioned, it will likely cost them a fraction of what it'd cost you to put it back on the road, and as long as that's done safely it's better for everyone than crushing it.
