Where we get our vehicle check data

We partner with government agencies and motor trade industry leaders to aid consumer protection and deter automotive fraud by making important vehicle information easily accessible.


The Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency is the UK government organisation responsible for maintaining a database of drivers in Great Britain and of vehicles for the entire United Kingdom.


Working directly with the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency, we monitor and log all MOT test data which we use to perform intelligent analysis on vehicle usage patterns.

Police Records

Data received from the Police National Computer (PCN) allows us to identify vehicles that have either been reported stolen, or vehicles that are of interest to the police.

Finance Companies

We work with banks, finance houses and logbook loan companies to receive alerts of any outstanding debts or loans secured against a vehicle either by vehicle registration number (VRN), or Vehicle Identification Number (VIN).


The Motor Insurers Anti-Fraud and Theft Register is a database containing records of written off and stolen vehicles. MIAFTR monitors and categorises vehicles written off for insurance purposes.


The Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders exists to support and promote the interests of the UK automotive industry and provides us detailed stats on vehicles and vehicle safety recall data.

Manufacturers and Dealerships

We gather data from motor manufacturers and dealerships to track vehicle maintenance and servicing requirements across hundreds of vehicle makes and models.

Salvage & Auction

We cross reference archive salvage and auction data to detect vehicles which have been salvaged but have not been recorded as a total loss by a motor insurer.

Previous Keepers

Vehicle usage and maintenance data as well as historical information compiled from previous owner or keepers records, verified by our in-house automotive experts.
