DVLA WRITE-OFF CATEGORIES

There are 4 categories your used car/vehicle can fall into if it has been in an accident. What you do next depends on which category it’s in:

Category Repairing the vehicle Using the vehicle
A Can’t be repaired Entire vehicle has to be crushed
B Can’t be repaired Body shell has to be crushed, but you can salvage other parts from it
C Can be repaired, but it would cost more than the vehicle’s worth You can use the vehicle again if it’s repaired to a roadworthy condition
D Can be repaired and would cost less than the vehicle’s worth, but other costs (e.g. transporting your vehicle) take it over the vehicle’s value You can use the vehicle again if it’s repaired to a roadworthy condition
N Can be repaired following non-structural damage You can use the vehicle again if it’s repaired to a roadworthy condition
S Can be repaired following structural damage You can use the vehicle again if it’s repaired to a roadworthy condition
