A Good Car Report Is Worth Its Weight In Gold

Commercial car reports offer an absolute wealth of data that you simply can't find anywhere else. Even if the car you are buying is less than £1,000, it's still worth spending a few quid on a car report. They cost from £2 to £20 and you can get various levels of detail for your money.

There are many companies offering reports, such as HPI, the RAC, MyCarCheck, Car Status Check, Instant Car Check, the AA and AutoCheck.

It's useful to know however that there are just two companies providing the base information - these are HPI and CDI, and the above report companies will get their information from one of these companies.

Some of the car report companies offer significant discounts if you order multiple reports.

Please note: At the end of 2013 all 39 local DVLA offices closed and the DVLA transferred all dealings to its national centre at Swansea. If your vehicle was registered before the end of 2013 then the street view map shown on the car registration page will point to the original office despite the fact that the office has closed.
