It's your responsibility to dispose of your unwanted vehicle properly

 

Unwanted Vehicle

According to the Laws of Hong Kong, a vehicle owner has a duty to dispose of his unwanted vehicle properly and he must not leave it on any road or Government land at liberty.

Within 15 days of a proper disposal of his unwanted vehicle,  the vehicle owner should submit or send by post the required documents to Licensing Office of the Transport Department for the notification for cancellation of vehicle registration. If the vehicle owner does not notify for the cancellation of vehicle registration, he will be held liable for all the liabilities incurred with the vehicle concerned.

If you wish to dispose of your unwanted vehicle, you may make use of the services provided by vehicle scrapping companies.  You are, however, reminded to:

(1) request for a scrapping certificate issued by the vehicle scrapping company. You should check if the Business Registration Certificate Number of the scrapping company has been marked on the certificate (Sample attached) ;
(2) submit or send by post the following documents to a Licensing Office of the Transport Department within 15 days after the scrapping of your vehicle for the notification for cancellation of vehicle registration:
  a.  the original Vehicle Registration Document;
  b.  the original Vehicle Licence of the vehicle (if the Licence is still valid);
  c. the original scrapping certificate issued by the vehicle scrapping company;
  d.  (i) the identification document of the registered owner (e.g. the H.K. Identity Card or a passport for non-H.K. Identity Card Holders, in the case of an individual owner or the Certificate of Incorporation in the case of a limited company owner); or
    (ii)  a copy of the identification document of the registered owner and the identification document of an agent if the notification for cancellation of vehicle registration is handled by an agent authorized by the registered owners;
  e.  the relevant original Certificate of Allocation of Personalized Registration Mark (if the present assigned vehicle registration mark is personalized registration mark); and 
  f. a duly completed "Notification for Cancellation of Vehicle Registration" (TD 184).

Information of vehicle scrapping companies could be obtained from the advertisements and directories in local media.
