Its fairly easy to scrap a car here in Bulgaria. You take to a scrap metal place and get a set price based on metal value. They give you a document that if it was a Bulgarian car, you would take to the traffic police here and show car is no longer on road and has been scrapped.

However, another alternative is to sell the car here if you have all paperwork. You can get decent money for a decent second hand car as they are expensive to buyer here.

Thanks for the reply bug Very Happy What document is needed to sell a car , just a V5c? ? Are there any garages or scrap metal places close by to the train station ? As suggested on this thread all I need to do is notify DVLA that car has been exported or is there anything else needs doing?

Many Thanks

If its a UK registered car then I think you just need the V5C, although you may also need to visit a notary here as that is how cars are sold here. Not sure what the scrap yard would accept.

Yes you need to notify the DVLA that the car is being exported.

Sorry can't help with Sofia. But there are metro links and buses to everywhere so should not matter where scrap place is.
