You want to ensure that the car you’re buying is worth your time and money. Make sure you check the authenticity of a vehicle via the number plate, checking it matches up with the logbook, before you buy a used car.
It’s normal for cars to have different registration plates over their lifetime, but if the car is stolen or the dealer isn’t honest about the fact that the plates have been changed, it could cause issues for you in the future. Using a number plate check provides you with peace of mind and certainty that the car you’re buying is genuine. We source our information from trustworthy sources so when you use our number plate checking services, you can be confident that you’re getting a report with precise and trusted data.
We provide up to date data that gives you the peace of mind that you’re investing your money in a roadworthy vehicle. The process of finding out more about your car couldn’t be easier. Simply enter the registration number of the vehicle you want to buy, and we’ll provide you with a detailed report with the information you need. Your report will give you all sorts of information, from tax due dates and physical specs to MOT due dates.
A registration plate has the country identifier, age identifier, area code and will contain three random letters to create a unique registration. The VIN comprises the make, model and brand, as well as other details such as the serial number of the vehicle, security code and the origin country.
When you’ve received the letter from the DVLA confirming the transfer of the registration number, you’ll be able to put your new number plates on your car – try to do this as soon as possible. While there is some time between getting your letter and switching out your plates, it’s better if you don’t wait too long to do this.
No, you cannot find out who a number plate belongs to. The only organisations who have access to this information are DVLA and the police, and the Data Protection Act prevents them from sharing the details with other people.
At Reg Car Check, we offer a wide range of reports, so you always have access to the latest information about any vehicle you’re interested in purchasing. Contact us today if you have any further questions.
