That site you refer to says they can remove vehicle from the register after an inspection. I'd like to know how? The car I'm running now (and had five years) is on the register as a class D - uneconomical to repair (at factory spare prices). The fact the a new front and rear bumper costs around £1500 to replace and paint was enough to write it off. Replacements form a scrap yard costs next to nothing so an inspection would show no damage (there wasn't any underlying damage behind the bumpers). If it only cost £200 to get an inspection and off the register then both the insurance companies and small traders would be doing this all the time.

Something odd somewhere. The register, AFAIK, records total losses to insurance companies - so no matter what is done to repair a vehicle, it will always have been a total loss.

I understand some of the insurers have been "cheating" and registering cars and bikes as cat "X" - this is not recorded and thus gets them a better price at salvage auctions as they can go back on the road without anyone knowing.
