A vehicle history check is one of your most valuable tools as a consumer when shopping for a used car.

Purchasing a car you don’t know anything about is a risky and expensive decision. Minimize your risk by informing yourself with a quality car history check. It takes only seconds to check car history online, without waiting around at a dealership. One in three vehicles checked has a hidden past. Protect your purchase and get peace of mind with a full vehicle history report.
What Is a Car History Check?
A car history check can tell you a lot about a vehicle before you purchase it. A car history check can tell you in seconds if the vehicle you are thinking of purchasing may have a number of potentially negative factors including:
- Discrepancies in the vehicle usage history
- Number of previous owners
- Colour changes
- Anomalies in reported mileage
- If the vehicle has been reported as stolen
- If the car has been previously damaged or written off
- Other discrepancies in information about the car’s history
And a “car history check” isn’t just for cars! You can get a vehicle history check on UK-registered cars, motorbikes, vans, and even motorhomes.
What Our Car History Check Includes
With the premium car history report, you can access vehicle data and detailed information such as:
Prior Damage and Insurance Write-offs
When a car suffers damage there are various insurance categories that it may be placed under according to how severe it is determined to be. With a full history report, you can find out if your car should not have been resold and was categorized as a scrapped vehicle. You can also see other details, like if the vehicle was safely repaired following a collision or accident, if it may have significant damage that requires a larger budget than you are prepared for, or if it may merely be scratched or scuffed without structural damage.
A vehicle MOT check can tell you the last date of the MOT check-up, the expected date for the next check-up, who performed the MOT inspection, and if any repairs were successful. You can view the vehicle’s mileage and see if any parts of the car have problems or have previously failed the MOT test.
Tax Check/ VED Check
Learn whether a vehicle has up-to-date vehicle tax or has been registered as SORN (off the road.) A tax check will let you calculate how much tax you will have to pay on the vehicle after purchase.
Import/ Export Check
If you want to know whether the vehicle you are thinking of was imported, you may have to purchase a full history check to find out. Import information is not always publicly available. You can find out all of the vehicle details of imported vehicles with the import/ export check. Imported vehicles may have a heightened risk compared to others.
We check police databases such as the Police National Computer in addition to insurer databases to determine if the vehicle you are thinking of purchasing has been reported as stolen. When purchasing a stolen vehicle, the car can be repossessed and returned to its rightful owner leaving the car buyer with no compensation or recourse of action. Depending on your insurance policy, you may be covered for some or none of your financial loss in this situation, so it is best to avoid it by obtaining a full report of any vehicle you purchase in advance.
If the previous owners of a vehicle owe money on the vehicle to a finance company or private owner, they may not have the legal right to sell the car to you. If you purchase the car unknowingly on a fraudulent basis, it can be repossessed. Find out about the outstanding finance on any vehicle with a car history check.
We offer the information above and more for less than half the price of other car check services.

While you are typically not required to obtain a car history report in order to buy a car, it can save you from an expensive and avoidable mistake. Some cars may have discrepancies in the details they advertise that you can find out about through a full history report, or sometimes even by simply doing a free car check! Without running a history check on a vehicle you are thinking of purchasing, you risk spending your money on a car that may be undrivable due to damage or faulty equipment or repossessed due to outstanding finance or being reported as stolen. In many situations, insurance will not cover the full cost of the vehicle purchase, if they cover it at all. This means that you will be without a car and at a financial loss with little to no recourse of action. Purchasing a car history check for just £9.95 can give you peace of mind and help you to select the right car for you.
