Quick and simple!

Just purchased a second hand car and used autoClarity to run a full check. It was easy and swift to use and gave me the confidence to purchase it!
I would absolutely recommend and would use again when purchasing any other vehicle.

All-round great app

Have been using the app for some time, and it's far superior in terms of value and ease of use to any competitor. The timeline makes it easy to see if any events have occurred
Very reassuring when buying a car.

Brilliant but...

I love using this app as it’s really easy to use. But there’s just one thing, the credits. I don’t really see the point in credits especially if you’re doing a free check. I can see why for a paid check but not for free checks. If the free check credits went or topped up daily then this app would just be a whole lot better.

Developer Response ,

Hi, thanks for writing a review. Unfortunately, not much in life is free...We pay every time you put a vehicle reg into the app. If we supplied unlimited free checks, there wouldn't be an app to use as we would rapidly go out of business! We have tried to design our vehicle lookups to supply much more than just DVLA registration and MOT History data without having to buy the more expensive vehicle checks. We've done it this way so if you're buying a vehicle, you can check, for example, the keeper history or ensure the VIN and Engine number are correct before committing to the more expensive paid checks. We simply can't supply an unlimited number of vehicle lookups, so we supply a free quota that resets every few days. This is suitable for most users who are looking up their own cars to check details, but you may need to buy vehicle lookup credits if you are checking more cars. The amount of data we supply in our vehicle lookups is much more than in competitor apps, so they are in fact great value for vehicle buyers who really benefit from the additional information. We also ensure that the data is as up-to-date as possible by refreshing it from source at least once a day. We hope this has clarified why there is a small charge for additional vehicle lookups, but, if you would like to discuss further please drop an email to and we would be happy to hear from you - we might even put some credits in your account :-). Thanks for being an autoClarity user. Best Regards autoClarity team.
