There is always the possibility of being taken advantage of when you buy a used car. Our deluxe check can ensure that your next vehicle is not a time bomb waiting to explode and costing you thousands of dollars in repairs. Our checks cover everything, from scrapped vehicles (aka stolen) to ensuring it was not purchased on finance prior to someone else's.

  • Clocked
  • Stolen, Scrapped or Written Off (all pretty bad).
  • Finance

Checkmot allows you to check the tax status of any vehicle as well as its MOT status.

Enter the vehicle registration number and we'll display all details of the MOT history.

An MOT check will allow you to inspect your vehicle and make any repairs that may be needed before they become more serious. It is essential that parts of your vehicle are free from corrosion.

Your mechanics will conduct a general inspection during your next MOT check. This helps to identify any potential problems with safety features such as seats, chassis mounting points or engine mounts. If left unchecked, these can become damaged by rusting over the years.

Our clever Check MOT system will tell you when your MOT is due. All you need is your vehicle's registration number. It will also inform you when and how much the next service is due, according to the manufacturer's schedule.

After purchase, the report will be delivered digitally.

These details will be confirmed by your Car MOT Check:

1. Vehicle Description - Using VRM (Vehicle Registration Mark), your Car History Check will confirm that the vehicle is registered with the DVLA. This will show the year of manufacture as well as the date of the vehicle's first registration in the UK. You will also be informed about the number of registered keepers and the date of the last keeper change.

2. Vehicle Title - By using the Vehicle Registration Mark (VRM), your Car History Check will determine if this vehicle is:

  • Outstanding finance
  • A current police interest
  • Awarded a VIC or registered as an insurance writer

If the vehicle has had one or more registration plates changed, you will be informed of each prior registration plate and the date that it was applied to your vehicle. Every previous plate will be checked to see if there are any title rights.

The names and information regarding the previous or current owners of a vehicle are not provided by Your Car MOT Check.
