Never agree to buy a used car without checking its history first.
Free to download, My Car Check allows you to view the details of any UK registered car, van or motorcycle by searching using the registration number.

However, this information is not enough to make an important decision such as buying a used vehicle.

Since 2005 we’ve provided peace of mind for millions of people. From only a few pounds you can avoid buying a potentially un-safe, stolen or debt-ridden vehicle, saving yourself time, money and effort, not to mention the unthinkable consequences of buying an unsafe car.
Don’t risk it. Check it first. Be car confident.

For FREE, we can usually provide:
• Make & Model
• Colour
• Engine Size
• Body Type
• Fuel Type
• Date of Registration
• CO2 Emissions
• Valuation
• MOT Status, History & Mileage
• Road Tax Information

For a fee, via in-app purchases or using credits from your My Car Check account you can get:
Our Basic Check for £1.99 per vehicle, reveals whether the registration is:
• Stolen
• Written-off
• Scrapped
• Exported
• Colour or plate changes
• Full vehicle specification details

Our Comprehensive Check for £9.99 per vehicle, includes all the above, plus:
• Outstanding finance details
• Covered by a £30,000 guarantee

We don’t mean to brag but:
• More than 1 million downloads
• #1 iOS utility 2010 – 2014
• App Store - 'Staff Favourites'
• Which? - '10 money-saving apps'
• Mail on Sunday Magazine - 'Cash-saving apps'
• Former #1 free app

Information is supplied by the DVLA, Police, ABI and SMMT. Not every vehicle will have all information available, please contact us before purchasing if you require specific information.
If you have any questions we provide email support at (9am - 5pm Mon-Fri excluding bank holidays).

My car check

Ok as long as it has been updated to a V5c

Downgraded by recent update

Being an overseas customer who mainly uses this app to see that a vehicle registration matches the description in an advertisement and to check the month of first registration. The latter is important for me to work out whether VAT is payable on an intended import. This information is no longer available without a payment of £1.99 for EACH vehicle one wishes to check. This was free until a recent update. Please reinstate

Developer Response ,
