Is the car showing the correct mileage & MOT


The number of owners registered on the Logbook


A guide valuation of the vehicle checked


Is the car declared Scarped by the DVLA


How many number plate changes has the car had


Is there a loan or outstanding debt on the car

Scrapped/Unscrapped: By cross-referencing data from the DVLA, we verify whether the vehicle you intend to purchase has been scrapped or is still in use.

Colour Change: Our registration check includes a record of the vehicle’s original colour and any past colour changes. It is essential to notify the DVLA and update your V5C registration document in case of any changes.

VIN or Chassis: This check reveals the last four digits of the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) provided by the DVLA. It is crucial to ensure that these numbers match the vehicle and the V5C logbook.

Engine Number: We provide the engine number of the vehicle, allowing you to verify that it matches the car’s engine and the V5C logbook.

Car Valuation: Our valuation tool provides you with an up-to-date price based on the car’s model and mileage. This includes both the trade-in price and the private sale price, giving you a comprehensive understanding of the car’s value.

What is a car

What is a Vehicle check?

Our Vehicle history check offers historical information on vehicles in the UK, allowing you to make informed decisions when buying a car. Our Vehicle check is the most extensive and detailed report available, providing you with complete confidence.

Insurance Write Off (Total loss) Check: We thoroughly examine whether the vehicle has been declared as an insurance total loss, including categories A, B, C, D, S, and N. This check provides details on the type of loss, the date it occurred, and the areas that were damaged. By analysing data from the insurance industry (MIAFTR), we determine if a vehicle has ever been written off. Additionally, our salvage history check can reveal any damage photos if the vehicle has been sold on auction sites.

Outstanding Finance Check: Our check reveals if a vehicle has any outstanding finance agreements. This information, along with the necessary details to contact the finance company, is provided to ensure transparency.

Imported/Exported: Through a number plate check, we determine if a car, motorbike, or van has been recorded as imported or exported by the DVLA. If a vehicle is flagged as exported, we recommend exercising caution before proceeding.
