Our vehicle checks include information gathered from various third parties that we work with, including the DVLA, the Police, MIAFTR and finance companies. You can be confident that we've provided you with the information we have available at the time of your check to help you make your purchase decision. Our service relies on the supply of data from third parties which can't be certified as complete and accurate.
