A brief history of Car Checks

If you have recently purchased a new vehicle, or if you’re looking at a particular vehicle to buy, it’s always good to do some research first so that you’re not blindsided by any hidden damages or clever repair work.

Luckily, you can get all your information for free at Car Check Experts in a quick and reliable fashion. All you need to do is enter the registration number, and you will get a comprehensive free car history report, direct from the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA). This clever tool will quickly show you the vehicle history, whether or not it has ever been reported as stolen, has been written off, or has outstanding finance. 

 

What is included within the free car check?

1. Vehicle details

2. Engine size in cc

3. Fuel type 

4. Vehicle type approval category

5. Vehicle weight 

6. Manufacturer year (excluding imported vans, cars and motorcycles)

7. ULEZ Checker (Ultra Low Emission Zone)

8. Vehicle road tax including CO2 output, road tax costs/rates, expiry date

9. Date it was first registered in the UK 

10. MOT history 

11. Issue date of the V5C registration document 

12. CO2 driving emissions levels

There are several things that you need to be aware of when it comes to owning a vehicle. First and foremost, you will need to have a Great Britain issued licence (full or provisional for learners). If your licence is from somewhere else, check gov.uk to see if your licence will allow you to drive the great streets of Britain. 

You must have at least 3rd party motor insurance on your vehicle, which has been a legal requirement since the Road Traffic Act 1930, so this is not brand new information. Insurance provides the financial protection that can cover yourself, passengers, pedestrians and other vehicles if you end up in an accident. Check your insurance status.

You must have a current Vehicle Tax, which you can learn more about at gov.uk if you are unfamiliar with it. You will need to have a new log book under your name (V5C), or a V11 reminder to tax your vehicle. Be careful when purchasing a car or selling yours, as the tax is not transferable! You can check your tax expiry and how many days you have left using our Car Tax Checker.

Your car will need a valid MOT, which tests that the vehicle meets the road safety and environmental and safety standards. You can check a vehicles current MOT, and also see the history of the vehicle, which is extremely handy if you are looking at purchasing a new car!

 

How to Check your Car Emissions

Car Check Experts provide a full environmental report for the car, which include data relating to CO2 emissions, the year of manufacture, and the annual road tax rate.

These car details are becoming increasingly important as the government and local councils are taking measures to reduce transport emissions by introducing clean air zones (CAZ) and ultra-low emission zones (ULEZ).

What Car History Check Does NOT Check

Car Check Experts history check does not provide the names of/or information referring to a vehicle’s previous or current owner(s).

It will not provide information on every accident a vehicle has been in. Accident damage can only be identified when the insurance company has registered the vehicle as a write-off.

The Car History Check does not provide details on the service history of a vehicle. For that, you will have to book a vehicle inspection at a mechanics.

It will also not provide any details if the vehicle has been stolen and recovered unless there are outstanding interests or the vehicle was subject to being written off as a total loss by the insurer.

Yes. By typing in your registration number, you will see a report of the history about the car for free.

You should check a car’s history before purchasing. This will ensure that you are aware of any issues with the vehicle like, outstanding finances, MOT history, written off checks and number plate changes, just to name a few.

No. Seeing as Car Check Experts only reports vehicles registered with the DVLA and DVA.
