Acquiring and Dismantling Vehicles

2.030 Obtaining Authority To Dismantle a Vehicle (VC §11520)

A licensed dismantler must submit the Report of Vehicle To Be Dismantled (REG 42) to the department together with the required clearance documents within 90 days of acquiring a vehicle. After the department has approved the application, the duplicate copy of the REG 42 will be validated and returned to the dismantler. If the application is incomplete and returned to you, authorization has not been granted by the DMV.
