There are nearly 25 million vehicles in our country. Most of the vehicles registered to this traffic are 20 years old and over, which we call old. The maintenance and taxes of these vehicles are high. In addition, it is dangerous to navigate in traffic. Therefore, these vehicles are withdrawn from traffic over time. If you have vehicles that have expired, you can pull them out of traffic. We call the process of pulling out of traffic the scrapping of the vehicle. What are the terms of vehicle scrapping?

What are the terms of vehicle scrapping?
In order for a vehicle to be scrapped, that is, completely withdrawn from traffic, the following conditions must occur.
- If the vehicle is no longer usable,
- If the vehicle is burned,
- If the vehicle is heavily rusted,
- If the vehicle is older,
- If it has completed its economic life, that is, if it needs to be inspected continuously, the vehicle can be scrapped.
Apart from these, there should not be any debt on the vehicle such as MTV and there should be no annotations such as lien or pledge on the vehicle.
If these situations occur for you, you can easily scrap your vehicle. Many vehicles are kept idle in warehouses. Even if they are not used, various payments such as MTV accumulate for these vehicles that are kept on hold. In order to avoid such situations, it will be to your advantage to remove the vehicles that have completed their economic life from the traffic. But how?
How is the vehicle scrapped?
The government encourages the scrapping of vehicles that have completed their useful and economic life. In this direction, it gives various incentives, such as SCT reduction, to our citizens, who scrap their vehicles, when buying new vehicles. You can also scrap your vehicles by taking advantage of these incentives. If you say how to scrap the vehicle, this is a very simple process. In order to scrap your vehicle, you must first take it to TÜVTÜRK vehicle inspection stations. If your vehicle is unable to start, you should take your vehicle with a tow truck. Your vehicle will be subjected to a technical evaluation here and then "The vehicle is not qualified to be on the road." A report will be written. After the report phase and paperwork are completed, your vehicle is sent to the Chamber of Mechanical Engineers. In this way, the scrapping of the vehicle is completed.
Is the seized vehicle scrapped or given?
One of the most frequently asked questions is whether the seized vehicles will be scrapped. As you can see in the list of documents required for scrapping the car below, there should be no annotations such as lien, pledge or precaution on the vehicle. In such cases, you cannot scrap the vehicle.
Is a non-existent vehicle scrapped?
If your vehicle is lost or stolen, you can tow your vehicle despite this situation by scrapping it from traffic. For this, you need to apply to the Traffic Registration Branch Directorate. Here, it is enough to say that you want to scrap my vehicle and perform the necessary actions. However, for vehicles that do not exist, the transaction is carried out only from the Traffic Registration Branch Directorate where the vehicle is registered.
What are the documents/documents for scrapping the vehicle?
