A car specification check is a report that reveals the core specifications of a vehicle, such as the make, model, fuel consumption, performance, speed figures and road tax status. It helps you make the most informed decision when buying a used car, and enables you to check if a car is precisely what you need. It’s a handy tool to make sure you’re choosing the right car for you. For example, knowing the running cost per year for a car can help you determine if a car will fit into your budget. Likewise, if choosing a fuel-efficient car is important to you, a car spec check can provide you with the economic details of the car.
Our car spec check report provides data from various trusted sources, including the DVLA, so you’ll get a comprehensive report. We’ll supply you with a wealth of information, from vehicle running costs and mileage history to performance data, BHP check, top speed, torque and much more.
Checking the logbook should be a mandatory task when you’re shopping for a used car, because there are basic details supplied that you can confirm online to make sure the vehicle is genuine. These include:
If the seller is trying to sell the car with a fake logbook, or excusing the logbook by saying it’s been sent to the DVLA for an update, using an online check can help you confirm these details. Something to note is that if the serial number is between BG8229501 and BG9999030, or BI2305501 and BI2800000, the V5C could be stolen so contact the police to check.
Yes, you can – simply provide us with your number plate and you’ll get the car specifications instantly.
No, you can’t check the vehicle’s specifications with a VIN, because no car history website is designed to supply this information. The car’s data is saved against the registration number, so you’ll need the number plate for this data.
You’ll need to update the logbook when there are changes in the name and address of the owner, and if there are any changes in the vehicle’s specifications.
If you don’t have a logbook, it’s tough to tax or sell a vehicle. But you can contact the DVLA for a replacement, which will cost you £25. You can get in touch with them via their website or by contacting them on 0300 790 6802.
