How the Vehicle Check works

All we need to get started is the vehicle’s registration number. We cross reference this against many reliable databases, including but not limited to those held with the police, insurers, banks & finance companies and the DVLA.

Managing vehicle check data is our thing, it’s what we do all day, every day. To stay ahead of the game, we use state of the art technology and processes to make sure the information we provide is as accurate and up to date as possible.

The vehicle check report gives a clear summary highlighting any issues you should be aware of, along with a more detailed explanation of the information you’re looking at in the respective sections.

The HPI Vehicle Check has been protecting motorists for 80 years and is still thriving. All aspects of our extensive experience and expertise are fed into a vehicle check that relied upon by millions of motorists across the UK.
