Discover What's Included in Our Comprehensive Vehicle History Report.

If you're planning to buy a car, it's essential to know everything about it. With The Auto Experts, you can get a comprehensive report on a vehicle's history, including outstanding finance, stolen status, write-off history, high-risk markers, import/export details, color/plate/ownership changes, VIN check, and MOT/mileage history.

Discover the detailed information included in our Vehicle History Report for only £9.99! We source over 50 trusted data points to bring you a comprehensive report on any UK registered vehicle. Enter your registration number to view the free car history check details extracted from the DVLA database of over 49 million driver records and 40 million vehicle records. With results in microseconds, our premium checks include:

  1. Outstanding Finance Check - Our report reveals any outstanding finance details about the car you're interested in. You'll get information on the finance contract date, type, and term, along with the finance provider's name, contact details, and agreement number.
  2. Police Stolen Check (PNC) – With our Police National Database (PNC) check, you can find out if the car has been reported stolen to the police. Our report will clearly mention whether the license plate is currently recorded as stolen by the police or not.
  3. Write-off Check – If a vehicle has been written off in the past, our report will disclose the insurance write-off categories assigned to it. This information is crucial in determining the car's value and safety.
  4. High-Risk Check – Our report will mention if the vehicle has been flagged as high-risk due to any dispute in ownership. We strongly recommend not buying a car with a high-risk marker.
  5. Import/Export Check – Our report will tell you if the car has been imported or exported. It's essential to know this information, as it's illegal to sell an exported vehicle.
  6. Number plate check – Our report will show if the car has undergone any color, plate, or ownership changes. These changes are normal, but they could also be hiding crucial details about the vehicle.
  7. VIN Check - Our report examines all details documented against the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) that are not noted down against the registered number of the vehicle. You'll also get the last 5 digits of the VIN to match it with the logbook to avoid buying a stolen/cloned vehicle.
  8. MOT History Check - Our report provides a complete MOT history of the car, including pass/fail status and failure/advisory notices, along with recorded mileage at each MOT test. You'll also receive full details about the MOT and tax expiry dates.

The Auto Experts provide an all-inclusive vehicle history report to give you complete peace of mind when purchasing a car.

Answering Your Questions

No, you cannot. Vehicle data platforms in the UK, including The Auto Experts, are not designed to provide a vehicle's history through VIN. You need a car's registered number to check its complete history.

No, you won't. The car history report only informs you of the number of keepers. The keeper may or may not be the owner.

Car history checks and HPI checks are essentially the same. The only difference is the name of the vehicle data provider. Both entities fetch crucial information about a vehicle from nearly the same sources.

A standard car history report doesn't provide information about the car's past accidents. However, it does show whether the vehicle has been damaged or written off and includes category information such as CAT A, CAT B, CAT S, and CAT N. If you need to know the specific details of the car's accident history, it's best to seek guidance from an expert.

A unit stocking finance agreement is a finance contract that enables dealers to get the cars they want through a private seller, another dealership or auction without paying for them from their pocket. If the vehicle you are buying comes with a unit stocking plan, get an endorsement in written form that the dealer will clear the loan on the car.

Yes, it is worth it. It allows you to know the current market price of the vehicle you will buy. Depending on where you are purchasing from, you know the price you should pay for the vehicle based on its condition.

Finding personal information about a car's owner using their registration number is not straightforward. Both free and premium 'vehicle check' services cannot provide personal driver details to safeguard their privacy, in accordance with DVLA guidelines.

However, you may obtain an owner's information through their registration number under specific circumstances. The DVLA holds this data but only releases it with 'reasonable cause,' often tied to road safety or related events.

Yes, our car history checks explicitly mention 'SORN' declared vehicles. However, 'UNSORN' is not something you could find in our report. You could also use the DVLA web page and askMID platform to know the SORN status of a vehicle.
