We cannot stress enough just how important it is for you to get a car checked before you pull the trigger on making a purchase.
If you buy a car that still has outstanding finance, you may be liable to pay the remaining balance on that finance agreement and the car could be repossessed. Nobody wants to spend money on something they don’t even get to own, so we recommend a detailed check.
It’s the same story with a stolen car. Imagine, you’ve forked over the cash but the car is taken away from you shortly afterwards. Our stolen check establishes whether your chosen vehicle is actually being sold by the person that owns it.

When buying or selling a vehicle, it’s important to do your homework - and car checking is a great way to confirm if a vehicle has been clocked, stolen, scrapped, written off and more.

Yes, we pride our car checks on being accurate, reliable and affordable. If you do encounter any signs of inaccurate information, this is due to the fact that the DVLA database hasn’t been updated.

Well, DVLA can provide you with the names of previous owners of a vehicle. However, at Reg Car Check, we enable you to quickly and easily see how many owners any car has had in the UK. Our checker will also show you how often a vehicle has changed hands.
These insights will give you the confidence to make informed decisions when purchasing a used car.
Our insurance write-off vehicle checker lets you see if your car has been in an accident. We gather information on any documented accidents by reviewing insurance records to discover whether the vehicle has been written off at any point.
A write-off is when the cost to repair a damaged vehicle is more than the car's value.
When a car is written off, it loses its value significantly. While it's sometimes okay to purchase a write-off, the fact that it has been written off is something the seller should make you aware of beforehand. However, some private sellers may not disclose this information, making it critical to do a write-off check and any other checks.
At Reg Car Check, we offer a free vehicle report that provides information on a vehicle's make, model colour, engine specification, vehicle type, emissions, mileage history, and tax MOT expiry.
This information will help you to choose a car that is suitable for you.
We also supply a full history check that offers a more comprehensive list of a vehicle's history, including its entire MOT history, write-off checks, ownership history, valuation data, running costs, and more.
It will only cost you £9.95 to purchase a full history report of your vehicle.
Our free car checker gives you access to a vehicle's mileage history.
Knowing how much a vehicle has been driven is essential to gauge whether its mileage correlates with its age and condition, so make sure you do a mileage history check before purchasing any used vehicle.
Before you purchase a vehicle, you will want to know the type of fuel it runs on.
For example, if you do a lot of driving, you may prefer a car that runs on diesel instead of petrol.
To check a car's fuel type, use our comprehensive car checker.
Understanding a vehicle's fuel type to make an informed decision when buying a motor will save you money in the long run!
Many people wonder what happens when a car fails its MOT.
If a car fails its MOT, you are not allowed to drive it. The car can only be driven to be repaired for the problems spotted during inspection. It may also be driven to a pre-arranged MOT appointment.
So, before purchasing and driving a car, we recommend determining its MOT status, i.e. whether it has ever failed and when the next test is due.
It's also essential to understand the problems a car may have had in the past to identify whether they have been rectified.
At Reg Car Check, you can conduct a full history check to reveal a vehicle's entire MOT history.
Knowing a car's value is important when buying or selling a vehicle.
