Seems a catB can make it back onto the road. The rules say a car "should" be wrecked, but if the car somehow avoids disassembly by an official/authorized wrecker, and the vin remains intact, then the original owner can apply for a new v5c. Then with repair etc, and a sucessful vic, it can get rego. Whether you'll get insurance (as its already been insurance paid out) is another question. With v5c export papers It is also possible to export the car.

Taken from the .gov website

 

'Category B’ means that body shell should be crushed, but some parts can be salvaged. The vehicle can never be used on the road again, but some parts can be used in other vehicles.

 

And the ABI's code of practice for Cat B cars states the following:

 

Category B must be treated as Category A once reusable parts have been removed. THE BODYSHELL/ FRAME/CHASSIS MUST BE CRUSHED.

I've just done a quick check & this car was recorded as Cat B in December 2013 & is recorded as being scrapped.

Something fishy going on?

I'd still like to know why this was apparently scrapped yet is still intact and also why the insurance co didn't arrange for the chassis to be crushed. Any answer to those questions OP?

If it's flood damaged the owner may have kept it and had the assessor round... It gets cat b'd and remains on said owners driveway since the insurance co can't be arsed to send a recovery company round.... Documents then say cat b and maybe the Dvla mark it as scrapped to prevent their system letting it back out in the wild

The wolf is correct Just to avoid someone buying this with the idea of putting it back on the road It ain't gonna happen ( legally)? Either export or parts is the way for this one

Font size was simply as a result of a copy and paste Mr Oates. (I.e. wind your neck in).
